Capitals’ first postseason practice underway

All of the Capitals, except for Dennis Wideman, are on the ice at KCI for the first practice of the postseason Monday morning. Wideman is still recovering from a leg hematoma and compartment syndome and is not expected to play in the first round.

Nine defensemen are taking part in the rather intense workout, though, and they are Mike Green, Jeff Schultz, John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Scott Hannan, John Erskine, Tyler Sloan and Tom Poti.

Here are the lines Coach Bruce Boudreau is using in the practice session, which will likely be what we see on Wednesday in Game 1 against the New York Rangers at Verizon Center.

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble

Sturm-Arnott-Semin

Laich-Johansson-Chimera

Hendricks-Gordon-Bradley
