The Washington Capitals held one final practice at MedStar Capitals Iceplex Wednesday morning before departing on a short, one-game road trip to Florida in advance of their tilt with the Panthers at BB&T Center in Sunrise on Thursday night. NoVa Caps’ Photojournalist Joe Noyes was on hand to capture a few images before the team departed for the Sunshine State.

Nic Dowd will make the trip to Florida and will be a game-time decision. Therefore, the Capitals re-assigned Liam O’Brien to Hershey this morning after practice. Braden Holtby will start tomorrow night.
