Semyon Varlamov Will Not Make Road Trip For The Capitals

Semyon Varlamov returned from a groin injury to make his first start of the year against the Bruins, but he didn't look very sharp. Whether it was rust or just that he was not fully healed from his injury, it was clear the Varlamov was not playing as well as he could.

Now it seems that it might be the effects of a lingering injury that caused Varlamov's performance, because according to Corey Masisak, Varlamov will not be making the upcoming road trip with the team.

Bruce Boudreau said Semyon Varlamov is not going on this road trip for the #Caps.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck

 

The Capitals will hit the road for a quick three game set against the Hurricanes, Wild and Flames. Michal Neuvirth will presumably continue to start in Varlamov's place until he is ready to return on a full time basis.
