Washington Capitals Injuries: Michal Neuvirth, Semyon Varlamov Both Day-To-Day, Braden Holtby Recalled

We already knew that Michal Neuvirth was injured. Now, it appears Semyon Varlamov might be too. Both players are listed as day-to-day, and neither practiced for the Capitals today. 

Both guys have battled groin injuries this season. Neuvirth was pulled from the Capitals' 3-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers last night with an undisclosed lower body injury, but he had been icing his groin before the game, according to reports. In fact, the team has sent him back home to D.C. for further evaluation, according to Mike Vogel.

Varlamov took Neuvirth's place after the first period, surrendering two goals in that time. He didn't appear to be injured after the game, but was listed as day-to-day today.

In response to both injuries, the team has recalled Braden Holtby from Hershey of the AHL. Holtby is 2-2 with a 3.84 goals-against average in four starts with the Capitals this season.
