Tonight's Lines: Green Out, Poti In

Per Stephen Whyno, the Caps will stick with the same lineup that has won three-in-a-row... with one major exception: Mike Green is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, so that gets Tom Poti back in the lineup. Per Mike Vogel, Expect to see the following line combinations and defensive pairings in front of Braden Holtby:

Jason Chimera - Mike Ribeiro - Alex Ovechkin

Wojtek Wolski - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

Eric Fehr - Mathieu Perreault - Joel Ward

Matt Hendricks - Jay Beagle - Joey Crabb

Karl Alzner - Tomas Kundratek

John Erskine - John Carlson

Tom Poti - Jeff Schultz

That leaves Roman Hamrlik as a healthy scratch, Green, Brooks Laich and Jack Hillen out with injuries, and Marcus Johansson perhaps somewhere in between.
