Capitals Vs. Rangers, 2011 NHL Playoffs Game 4: Mike Knuble's Status Remains Uncertain

The Washington Capitals could be without the services of veteran winger Mike Knuble when they play Game 4 of their 2011 NHL Playoffs first-round series against the New York Rangers on Wednesday. Knuble once again did not participate in the morning skate, the third straight day in which he did not practice. The Capitals have not disclosed any injury, but he appeared to injure his wrist before scoring the game-tying goal on Sunday.

After practice, coach Bruce Boudreau declined to provide the status of Knuble for Wednesday night. Via Brian McNally of the Washington Examiner:

So Bruce Boudreau said he won't comment on players. Said Knuble's equipment will be in the room. But haven't seen him in 3 days, either    

If Knuble cannot play, Eric Fehr, who has been a healthy scratch in the entire series, would likely take his place. It would be interesting, however, to see if Fehr or Jason Chimera joins Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the top line.
