Wideman’s Return To Caps Lineup Is Unknown

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,

Coach Bruce Boudreau said he’s “gotta believe” that Dennis Wideman will miss at least the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. How much time the defensemen will miss exactly while he recovers from a leg hematoma and compartment syndrome that resulted in his leg being cut open to drain the blood and relieve pressure in his thigh, that is still far from certain.

“We don’t know,” Boudreau said when asked if there was any timeline for Wideman’s return. “It’s one of those things that, again, this time next week we’ll know a lot more than we know now, but it depends on how his rehab goes and how quick he takes to it.”
