The Washington Capitals were on ice Sunday morning for a practice following their 3-1 loss to the Rangers in game one of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Saturday afternoon. Some updates from Madison Square Garden:
Alexander Semin was dropped from the first line to the fourth one for this practice, taking his reps with Mike Knuble and Keith Aucoin. The other lines were Chimera-Backstrom-Johansson, Ovechkin-Laich-Brouwer, Hendricks-Beagle-Ward, and Sjogren-Perreault-Halpern.
The defensive pairings were also changed, with Dale Hunter putting Jeff Schultz back with Dennis Wideman and John Erskine back with Dmitry Orlov on the extra pairing. Look for that to be the lineup for game two on Monday night.
