Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Marcus Johansson Game-Time Decision

Per Adam Vingan, Marcus Johansson will be a game-time decision after suffering a lower-body injury last night. If he can't go, expect these lines and defensive pairings at the outset of tonight's game, perhaps, with Philipp Grubauer quite possibly getting a second-consecutive Braden Holtby getting the start in net:

16-19-8_medium

Eric Fehr - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

10-84-20_medium

Martin Erat - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer

25-83-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward

24-48-43_medium

Aaron Volpatti - Casey Wellman - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-61_medium

John Erskine - Steve Oleksy

That would leave Alexander Urbom and Michal Neuvirth as healthy scratches, Johansson, Brooks Laich, Michael Latta and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Grubauer serving as the evening's backup goaltender.
