After two days of battling the flu Tomas Vokoun returned to the ice for an optional practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.

Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth participated in drills along with forwards Mike Knuble, Jay Beagle and Joel Ward and defensemen Mike Green, Jeff Schultz and John Erskine.

Green, who underwent abdominal surgery on Jan. 17, has shown very little limitations during his recent on-ice workouts.

Green is hoping to get the green light this weekend when the Capitals visit the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning Friday and Saturday nights, but it appears more likely his return will come Monday night in Carolina.
