A very optional practice is underway at Kettler Capitals Iceplex where only eight players who were in the lineup for Monday’s 2-1 shootout win over the Lightning are on the ice. Mike Green is skating for the second consecutive day since suffering a second hit to the head that caused what is believed to be a concussion.

In no particular order those skating are: Green, Braden Holtby, Jeff Schultz, John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Tom Poti, Tyler Sloan, Eric Fehr, Jason Chimera, Matt Hendricks, Boyd Gordon, Matt Bradley and D.J. King.
