BELLEVILLE, Ont. Ruben Loftus-Cheek England Jersey . -- Mikhail Grabovskis only real link to the Washington Capitals has come in the form of text messages from Alex Ovechkin. "He always tries to help me, texts me messages and tries (to) explain to me about the area in Washington," Grabovski said. The former Maple Leafs centre doesnt know much about the city he signed in because visa issues have prevented him from joining his new team. Trapped in limbo in Toronto, Grabovski has been happy to spend more time with his family but is also eager to begin a new chapter of his career with the Capitals. Grabovski was so eager that he made the almost-200-kilometre drive to Belleville to skate with his new teammates Saturday morning before their pre-season opener against the Winnipeg Jets. It was at least a brief chance to get acclimated to a team thats still unfamiliar to him with the start of the regular season less than three weeks away. "(Im) a little bit frustrated but Im not worried because I know they make for me visa, so everything (is) going to be fine," Grabovski said. "Im just excited to see the guys today. Im very happy to be here." Skating at Yardmen Arena represented another high in an up-and-down few months for the 29-year-old, who signed a one-year, US$3-million deal with the Capitals in late August. Earlier in the off-season, the Maple Leafs bought Grabovski out of the final four seasons of a five-year, $27.5-million contract, just before he got married and went on his honeymoon. Grabovski has since expressed a desire to move on from his tenure in Toronto, which ended with some critical comments about coach Randy Carlyle. Not being able to join the Capitals yet is delaying that process. "New scenery, you want to get off to a great start and a visa issue kind of derails you," coach Adam Oates said. "Youve got to feel for him." Grabovskis not asking for sympathy, though. He would like to be in Washingtons camp but is making the most of some extra time in a place he called "kind of my hometown." "I train myself and just work out (in the) gym and just spend time with my family," he said. "I kind of lost days in the summer, so it was a little bit (of a) gift to my family." Grabovskis gift to the Capitals would be replacing Mike Ribeiro as their second-line centre. Before he can do that, though, he has to practice. For now, Grabovski and the team are waiting for his visa to get taken care of. They hope the problem will be settled on Monday so he can get to Washington and begin trying to fit in. "I think hes very excited and he feels kind of, when you come to new group, little shaky," Ovechkin said. "But Im sure the guys and myself are going to treat him well and hes going to feel much better. " Once Grabovski gets to camp, hell have an adjustment to make. But its not an entirely new process. "Its not my first time I play for a different team," said Grabovski, who was traded from the Montreal Canadiens to the Maple Leafs in July 2008. "But its always new people and new characters. But its a good experience for me. I (am) always looking forward and enjoy this moment. Its the time of life when you just have a good experience." The Capitals would like to make it a good experience for Grabovski, and Oates figures hell get into five pre-season games to build up some familiarity with linemates. Saturday was just a quick introduction because Grabovski wasnt able to fly back with the Capitals or even play against the Jets. "Its obviously short," goaltender Braden Holtby said. "We havent really got to know him yet, but its nice to have all the pieces in place." Itll be nicer for Grabovski once he can put on a Capitals jersey day after day and feel like a part of the team. "Its just tough to come to a new team and new partners," he said. "But after first ice, everythings good right now and I feel comfortable." Jack Butland England Jersey .

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Jay Bruce had hit the ball hard twice, only to see the worst slump of his career get deeper. He finally ended it with a hit that nobody was going to take away. Bruce emerged from his 0-for-26 skid with a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, rallying Mat Latos and the Cincinnati Reds over the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2. Bruce flied out to the wall in centre field and lined out to centre earlier in the game, so he took a little confidence into his game-changing at-bat. "I knew I wasnt going to go 0-for-my-career," Bruce said. "Id been making hard contact. I really didnt feel like I was 0-for-so-much." The Reds gained a game on the NL Central leaders by taking two of three in their series, moving to six back. Cincinnati has won 10 of 15 overall. "That could have easily gone the other way," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "We really didnt want to lose ground on this team." The Brewers have lost five of six but still have the NLs best record and a comfortable lead. Bruce hit a two-run shot with one out off left-hander Will Smith (1-2), who took over for Yovani Gallardo. Smith hadnt allowed a homer to a left-handed batter all season, holding them to a .143 average. The matchup with the slumping Bruce seemed to favour Milwaukee in every way. "Its a crazy game," Bruce said. "You cant be surprised by anything that happens in the game of baseball." Smith got ahead 1-2 in the count, then threw a fastball that was up. Bruce pulled it to right field, the part of Great American Ball Park closest to the Ohio River. "Hes given a lot of people trouble," Price said of Smith. "He made a mistake. You do that and hes going to hit the ball in that creek out there." A replay review overturned Ramon Santiagos inside-the-park homer in the Reds second. A fan reached his mitt onto the field and hit right fielder Logan Schafers glove as he tried to catch the fly ball in front of the wall. The umpires initially ruled the ball in play, and Santiago circled the bases as Schafer and the ball fell to the ground. Following a 3-minute, 46-second review, Santiago was ruled out because of the fans interference. Latos (2-1) allowed two runs and four hits in a season-high eight innings. Jonathan Broxton pitched the ninth for his sixth save in eight chances. Closer Aroldis Chapman wasnt available because he slightly pulled a hamstring while running in the outfield before the game. Both teams were missing stars. Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was sidelined by a stiff back that forced him to leave Saturdays game. Ashley Young Jersey. Manager Ron Roenicke said the problem doesnt appear to be series. Reds first baseman Joey Votto got a day to rest his bothersome left leg. Votto missed 23 games with a strained muscle above his left knee and has batted .250 without a homer since his return. The muscle isnt expected to heal fully until after the season. Latos made his fifth start since recovering from torn knee cartilage and a strained pitching forearm that sidelined him until June 14. He let a 2-0 lead slip away. Schafer tripled and scored on Scooter Gennetts groundout in the sixth. Schafer also doubled off Latos with two outs in the eighth and came around on Rickie Weeks pinch-hit single, making Latos smack his glove in frustration. In his last three starts, Latos has allowed a total of four runs in 22 innings, showing hes fully recovered from the injuries. Devin Mesoraco had three hits, including an RBI single in the first inning off Gallardo, who gave up two runs in seven innings. Gallardo was coming off his worst start of the season: 10 hits, eight runs in five innings of a 10-4 loss to Colorado last Sunday. He settled in after a rough first inning. Bruce grounded into a forceout that drove in a run, and Mesoracos single made it 2-0. NOTES: The Brewers open a seven-game homestand against Philadelphia and St. Louis on Monday. Marco Estrada (7-5) faces Cole Hamels (2-5). The Reds continue their homestand with the start of a five-game series against the Cubs. Mike Leake (6-7), who has won his last three starts against Chicago, faces Edwin Jackson (5-8). ... The Reds put C Brayan Pena on the paternity list and called up C Tucker Barnhart for his third stint this season. ...
