Brooks Laich: (Upper Body) May Return Saturday

by Oct 30, 3:43 PM

Coach Barry Trotz said Laich (upper body) could possibly play Saturday against the Lightning, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

Analysis:

The Capitals planned to place Laich on injured reserve last week, but ended up reversing course and keeping him on the roster as a scratch for each of the last four games. He's been doing some activity on his own in preparation for a return, but if he's unable to fully practice Friday, it would seem likely that the Capitals rule him out for a fifth straight contest.
