Via Katie Carrera, the Capitals' lineup tonight against Phoenix (as Washington looks to extend their season long win streak to five games). Goaltender Michal Neuvirth will be tasked with protecting the goal at Jobing.com Arena.
Martin Erat - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin
Brooks Laich - Marcus Johansson - Troy Brouwer
Jason Chimera - Mikhail Grabovski - Joel Ward
Aaron Volpatti - Michael Latta - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
Nate Schmidt - Mike Green
Alexander Urbom - Steve Oleksy
That leaves Jay Beagle, John Erskine, Eric Fehr, Jack Hillen, and Dmitry Orlov off of Adam Oates' lineup card for the first game of the Western weekend swing.
