Ailing Gordon out at least next two games; Clark questionable for Friday

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Washington Capitals forward Boyd Gordon
will miss at least the next two games with an undisclosed injury,
and captain Chris Clark was listed as questionable for Friday's
game at the Carolina Hurricanes.

Gordon scored in the shootout during Washington's loss to the
Florida Panthers on Wednesday night. He did not skate Thursday, and
the Capitals did not say where or when he was hurt. He was listed
as week-to-week and won't play Friday or at Florida on Saturday.

Clark was listed as day-to-day after missing the end of
Wednesday's game with a groin injury.

Another forward, Alexander Semin, is expected to play Friday
after missing time because of an ankle injury.

The Capitals, who have the NHL's worst record at 8-15-2, likely
will recall someone from their AHL affiliate before Friday's game.
