Alexander Semin, Roman Hamrlik likely game-time decisions vs. Panthers

Alexander Semin (shoulder) and Roman Hamrlik (lower-body injury) were on the ice this morning at BankAtlantic Center ahead of tonight’s game against the Southeast Division leading Panthers.

Semin missed Saturday’s game; he did not appear to be taking shots and did not take line rushes. Hamrlik appeared to be moving fine and joined his fellow blue-liners in rushes. The defenseman missed the past two games.

Both are likely to be game-time decisions.

Here’s how the lineup appeared:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Brouwer
Eakin-Johansson-Knuble
Chimera-Laich-Ward
Hendricks-Perreult-Halpern

Defensemen
Alzner-Carlson
Erskine-Wideman
Schultz-Hamrlik/Orlov

Both goalies are still on the ice, but I have to imagine that Tomas Vokoun will get the nod in his return to South Florida.

I’ll have more after Coach Dale Hunter addresses the media and some notes on the Panthers’ resurgence after that.

More on the Caps from this morning, in case you missed it:
