Description: Dennis Wideman scored three power-play goals and added an assist in the Capitals' 4-2 win over Toronto on Friday. NHL.com
Insight: There's no way that Wideman owners could have imagined this, as he had never scored more than one goal in a game in his career. With Mike Green still out of the lineup, Wideman is seeing the bulk of the power-play time and has had a resulting increase in fantasy value (19 points in 28 games).

Description: Dennis Wideman was on the ice doing some light skating by himself before Friday's practice. Washington Post
Insight: This is the first time that Wideman has skated since suffering a leg hematoma. Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said earlier in the week that he expected Wideman to be sidelined for another three weeks, but it's possible that he could alter that timetable if Wideman can heal quickly.

3/31/2011 11:54:00 PM
Description: Dennis Wideman is currently in a Washington hospital with significant leg hematoma, which resulted from a hit he took during Tuesday's game. TSN
Insight: Wideman is now sidelined indefinitely, as opposed to day-to-day. The Capitals are hurting on the blueline, as they are also without Mike Green and Tom Poti. Don't expect Wideman to return in the regular season, while his availability for the playoffs appears to be in serious doubt.
 
3/31/2011 12:48:00 PM
Description: Dennis Wideman is expected to miss at least the next two games due to injury. Washington Post
Insight: Wideman is currently listed as week-to-week. Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau couldn't say whether Wideman would be back before the end of the season, so you'll probably have to look for another option for your defense.

Description: Wideman missed Wednesday's practice because of the lower-body injury that forced him out of Tuesday night's contest early.
Insight: Wideman is in danger of missing Thursday's game, which could leave the Caps without three of their top defensemen. Wideman sports 10 goals and 40 points but a mere minus-19 rating for the season. (RapidDraft.com)

Insight: Wideman's plus/minus (-26) should improve in Washington, although he will need to battle with Mike Green and John Carlson for power-play time. Wideman has 19 power-play points this season, including a league-leading eight power-play goals.
 
2/26/2011 12:19:00 AM
Description: Dennis Wideman missed Friday's game against Atlanta with an undisclosed injury. South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insight: Speculation was running rampant that Wideman missed the game because the Panthers were about to trade Wideman, but both coach Peter DeBoer and assistant GM Mike Santos confirmed that Wideman was battling injury. Don't be surprised if the Panthers, clearly in sell mode, deal Wideman and/or Bryan McCabe by Monday's trade deadline.
