Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Dmitry Orlov, Martin Erat to Play

Per Katie Carrera, Dmitry Orlov will make his season debut and Martin Erat draws back into the lineup tonight against the Isles, with Braden Holtby between the pipes. As for how the lines and pairs will shake out, it's anyone's guess, but here's a good one:

25-19-8_medium

Jason Chimera - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

16-84-20_medium

Eric Fehr - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer

90-83-42_medium

Marcus Johansson - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward

24-10-43_medium

Aaron Volpatti - Martin Erat - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

88-52_medium
Nate Schmidt - Mike Green

81-23_medium

Dmitry Orlov - Tyson Strachan

That leaves Steve Oleksy and Alexander Urbom as healthy scratches, Brooks Laich, John Erskine and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Philipp Grubauer backing up Holtby (additionally, Michael Latta was sent back to Hershey to make all of the moves work).
