NEWARK—Monday’s practice at Prudential Center began with three of the Caps’ injured players on the ice.
Winger T.J. Oshie and defensemen Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen started as full participants in the session, which is ongoing.
There were no minor-league call ups present.
Oshie (upper body) skated as the right wing on the third line rather than his usual spot on the top combination. He left practice about 30-minutes into the session, which was planned.
Orpik and Niskanen, meanwhile, were part of seven-man rotation on the blue line.
Coach Barry Trotz and the players are expected to address reporters at the end of practice.
The Caps are practicing at the Devils’ practice rink en route to New York, where they’ll face the Rangers on Tuesday.
