Centre Michael Nylander will be a healthy scratch for tonight's game against the Brodeur-less Devils. Nylander, who's been playing very poorly recently with only 1 assist in the past 7 games, is rumored to be targeted by the Black Hawks who are looking for depth at centre.
Nylander has a no-trade clause, but he still owns a house in Chicago which could be one of the few cities to where he would agree to lift his NTC.
Sergei Fedorov is still bothered by an ankle injury and won't play during the weekend's games. He expects to come back next week.
Defenseman Shaone Morrison will alo miss tonight's game due ton an injury.
Jose Theodore will be in goal tonight. Scott Clemmensen will in goal for New Jersey.
On a side note the Capitals have signed 2008 first round draft pick John Carlson to a three-year entry level contract.
