Capitals Notebook: Latest On Orlov, Carlson & Alexeyev, Who All Skate



Washington Capitals

WASHINGTON — The Washington Capitals were back at it for an optional skate, and got some good — and bad — signs as well.

Dmitry Orlov, John Carlson and Alex Alexeyev were all on the ice for practice. However, Orlov left twice. He came back the first time but didn’t stay on after the second time. Carlson and Alexeyev skated the whole time. None of them were in non-contact jerseys, though.

Per the team, Orlov and Carlson are day-to-day with lower-body injuries. Alexeyev, who was recalled from Hershey after a long-term conditioning loan, is on the long-term injured reserve.
