Indications are that both Donald Brashear and Boyd Gordon will be healthy enough to play in Game One of the playoffs on Wednesday.
Boyd Gordon is the team's best penalty killer, its best defensive forward and either its best or second-best faceoff guy. (Gordon ranks ninth in the league at 56.1 percent, David Steckel is fifth at 57.9 percent.) Boyd Gordon scores about as often as Bruce Boudreau gets a haircut.
Brash is a fourth-liner. He led the Caps with 121 PIMs while posting 1-3-4, -6.
The problem is: There's only one sweater 'available.' Who should get it?
