  • Simeon Varlamov (2-0-0, 1.50, .953) was sent back to AHL Hershey today. The teams pronounced Jose Theodore fit for action. In a brief interview posted by Capitals Insider, Varlamov was disappointed but resigned:

    "I'm a little bit disappointed," Varlamov [said, through the interpreter]. "But I was kind of expecting it because they told me in advance that it might happen. Of course, it's not very pleasant when you play well and you get sent back to the farm right away. But I understand what's going on."

  • Brent Johnson is scheduled to start tomorrow's grudge match against the Flyers in Philly.

  • D Mike Green practiced this morning and hopes to play tomorrow afternoon, depending on how sore his shoulder is in the morning.

  • F Alexander Semin, however, did not practice and he is listed under the dreaded "day-to-day". Aren't we all.

  • John Erskine didn't practice.
