Tonight's Lines: Brouwer, Schultz Out; Wolski, Oleksy In; Hamrlik Waived

Per Stephen Whyno, Troy Brouwer is sick and will miss tonight's game against the Bruins, Wojtek Wolski will get back in the lineup in his place, the third- and fourth-line centers flip slots, and Steve Oleksy (wearing #61) will make his Capitals debut alongside Tom Poti in the third pairing of blueliners. So expect the lines and defensive pairings in front of Braden Holtby (who is making his tenth-straight start):

Matt Hendricks -- Mike Ribeiro - Alex Ovechkin

Wojtek Wolski - Nicklas Backstrom - Eric Fehr

Jason Chimera - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward

Aaron Volpatti - Mathieu Perreault - Joey Crabb

Karl Alzner - Tomas Kundratek

John Erskine - John Carlson

Tom Poti - Steve Oleksy

That leaves Jeff Schultz as a healthy scratch, and Mike Green, Brooks Laich, Jack Hillen and Marcus Johansson out with injuries (in addition to Brouwer and his illness).

"But what about Roman Hamrlik?" you ask. The Caps placed Hamrlik on waivers earlier today, effectively stopping Hamr's time in Washington (for now, at least).
