Erskine not practicing

Defenseman John Erskine is not on the ice with his teammates at Ice Sports Forum this morning, which could mean the Caps' toughest defenseman is out for tomorrow's game against the Lightning.

Erskine suffered an undisclosed injury Saturday in Atlanta and missed almost all of the third period.

With Erskine sidelined, Tyler Sloan is paired with Brian Pothier as the team goes through systems-related drills. The forward combos, meantime, are unchanged.

I'll have more after practice.
