Theodore left practice early today and many speculated he was injured. The official word came down with Theodore day-to-day with a hip flexer injury.

Funny story about the backup goalie tonight. The Capitals called up Simeon Varlamov from Hershey, however he wouldn't make it until the second period. The Caps received permission from the NHL to sign their web producer Brett Leonhardt who had to sign an amateur tryout contract. When Leonhardt was shown on the jumbotron he tried to not smile; the crowd gave him a warm ovation.
