Washington has recalled goaltender Semyon Varlamov from Hershey. This morning, Coach Bruce Boudreau said that it was no longer a question of health with Varlamov, who was with the Bears on a conditioning stint following the latest flare up of a groin problem, but when he would be game-ready.
Varlamov arrived in New Jersey this afternoon and is listed on the official scoresheet as Braden Holtby's backup and a team spokesman said he will be on the bench soon. For the start of the game however, Michal Neuvirth was on the bench in that role.
I'll have more details on the goaltending swap after the game.
