Capitals' Poti (Upper Body) Out Thursday; Day-To-Day

News: Tom Poti is day-to-day with an upper body injury, and he will not play in Thursday's game against the Penguins, the Washington Times' Stephen Whyno reports.
Analysis: Tom Poti can't seem to shake the injury bug, although the good news is that this is an upper body injury rather than a recurrence of the groin issue he was previously dealing with. Consider him day-to-day and look for Roman Hamrlik to skate in his place Thursday night.

He was loaned to AHL Hershey for a conditioning assignment on January 13, and recorded one goal in two games. Washington head coach Adam Oates didn't specify whether he would be on the 23-man roster for opening night, but it is unlikely the Capitals would have brought him back were he not expected to crack the opening night roster.

Caps' Poti Still Hurting

News: Tom Poti will begin the year on the NHL's long-term injured reserve list because of a lingering groin injury, according to the Washington Examiner.
Analysis: The veteran still can't push past about 85 percent without suffering a setback.

He's played more than 73 games just once in the last seven seasons.

Poti has two years remaining on his contract. He's still a good blueliner, but health issues have gotten in the way of several of his recent seasons, and he's never played more than 71 games in his four seasons with the Caps.
