O.K. Not O.K.

Per Tarik's blog:

"Goaltender Olie Kolzig went down with what appeared to be a groin injury during today's practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. The extent of the injury was not immediately known. But I can safely say that it didn't look good.

"The veteran screamed as he slid from side to side while trying to stop a 2 on 1 early in the session. He stayed down for about a minute as teammates and training staff came to his side. He eventually skated off on his own, but was clearly hurt."

UPDATE: Preliminary reports have Olie out for at least three weeks with a knee injury. Perfect.

1) Not that the Caps have a realistic playoff shot, a significant Kolzig injury would cement that very quickly
2) Here's hoping the big guy is ok!

It's time to call up some young guys and see if they can play. Why not?

Uhh... who do we have that's young and a goalie?

Varlamov, can you come over from Russia? Even though that would destroy your confidence?

Maybe they can bring back Matt Yeats for Operation Tank Job, Part Deux.
