Brooks Laich not on the ice for practice

Capitals practice has just started here at KCI and Brooks Laich is not in attendance. I'll have an update on his status after the workout but this is unusual for Laich, who almost always takes part in practice even when it's an optional session.

--Michal Neuvirth is skating with the rest of the team for the first time since leaving the Flyers game back on Jan. 18 and Alexander Semin has remained on the ice for the main practice after exchanging his yellow, no-contact jersey for a gray one.

--Tyler Sloan has returned to Washington after his conditioning stint in Hershey.

--Tom Poti and Eric Fehr are both off the ice.

After all of that here are the Capitals' line combinations for this evening practice:
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble
Chimera-Perreault-Semin
Hendricks-Johansson-Gordon
King-Steckel-Bradley

Schultz-Green
Alzner-Carlson
Erskine-Hannan
Sloan
