Joffrey Lupul (head injury) skated for 20 minutes yesterday and said he feels good. He won't play tonight but it seems like he may be able to make a miraculous return sometime soon.
Mixed messages for the Caps as they said that Martin Erat doesn't have a concussion after going into the boards heavily on Saturday but he does have a leg injury. Erat reported that he was feeling pretty good on Sunday, so maybe he won't be out long. The bad news was that Brooks Laich is due to see a groin specialist this week and I'm guessing it's trending towards season-ending surgery
The former all-star known as Dany Heatley will have shoulder surgery on Tuesday and is likely out for a while.
Mike Fisher missed three games, came back for two and is now out again due to a bum hand... he's day-to-day.
Nikita Nikitin missed yesterday's game due to a UBI.
Henrik Zetterberg just laughs at punks sitting out due to the flu as he's been playing though a bad groin for a while.
Craig Anderson made his first start in six weeks yesterday after recovering from that ankle injury.
