Caps recall Sabourin, projected lineup
Goaltender Michal Neuvirth is still ailing because of a bruised foot, so the Washington Capitals have recalled Dany Sabourin again Tuesday.

Neuvirth was injured during warmups before the Capitals played the Tampa Bay Lightning on Oct. 10 when he took a shot in the foot. Tomas Vokoun has started three straight games for Washington, and he will likely be in net against his former team, the Florida Panthers, for the Capitals at Verizon Center.

The Capitals have recalled both Braden Holtby and Sabourin during the time Neuvirth has been injured, but neither has seen any game action. Holtby would likely be the one who gets the call if either Neuvirth or Vokoun is out for an extended period.

Vokoun had a shaky outing in his debut with Washington, but has had two consecutive strong performances in wins against Pittsburgh and Ottawa.

Here is what the Capitals’ lineup will likely be against the Panthers:

Alexander SeminMarcus JohanssonMike Knuble

Matt HendricksJeff HalpernMathieu Perreault

Roman HamrlikMike Green

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
