Tonight's Lines: Same Men, Same Mission

Per Katie Carrera, the same twenty players that dressed against the Senators on Thursday night will skate against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre. Center Nicklas Backstrom confirmed his health on Friday after taking a Mike Green slap shot off the right arm, so these will be the lines in front of Braden Holtby:

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

Martin Erat - Mike Ribeiro - Troy Brouwer

Jason Chimera - Mathieu Perreault - Eric Fehr

Aaron Volpatti - Matt Hendricks - Jay Beagle

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

John Erskine - John Carlson

Jack Hillen - Steven Oleksy

That leaves Wojtek Wolski and Jeff Schultz as Oates' healthy scratches, with Brooks Laich, Joel Ward, and Tom Poti out with injury.
