Washington pays a visit tonight to the Southeast Division-leading Florida Panthers, who have been one of the league’s biggest surprises this season thanks in part to some former Capitals. Some reading material:

Theodore ‘ill,’ Clemmensen gets the nod
Vokoun denied on-ice homecoming; Neuvirth to start
Semin’s status unclear | Hamrlik out again

Chat about the game in the comments section below.

Faceoff: 7:30 p.m., BankAtlantic Center | TV: CSN | Radio: 1500 AM

Based on line rushes during warm-up tonight at BankAtlantic Center,
Capitals winger Alexander Semin is out for tonight’s game against the
Panthers.

Coach Dale Hunter said this morning that the struggling winger was
healthy enough to suit up after missing Saturday’s game with what a source called a minor shoulder injury. But a team spokesman said
moments ago that Semin remains day-to-day.

Based on the warmups, the rest of the Caps' lineup should look like this:

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

Defense
Alzner-Carlson
Erskine-Wideman
Schultz-Orlov

Goalies
Neuvirth
Vokoun
