It has been an eventful two days for Washington Capitals goaltender Jose Theodore.

After being named the Caps' starting netminder for the playoffs and having his credentials questioned by former teammate Tomas Plekanec on Tuesday, Theodore left the ice at practice Wednesday after being hit by a shot by Alex Ovechkin.

Ovechkin's shot hit Theodore in the arm, causing the 33-year old keeper to head to the bench for a brief period.  He then returned to the ice before heading to the locker room for the remainder of practice. 

While Theodore did not speak to the media following practice, Capitals head coach Bruce Boudreau said that Theodore got a "stinger" from being hit by Ovechkin's shot.  Boudreau also believes that Theodore should be fine.

The Capitals kick off their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.  It's a game you can catch on TSN and TSNHD starting at 7pm et/4pm pt.
