Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Flipping the Wings, Neuvirth in Net

Per Mike Vogel, Michal Neuvirth gets the call against the Penguins tonight (and here's hoping he hasn't forgotten what ol' Dan Bylsma thinks of him). In front of him, another slight change to the top-six as Brooks Laich and Eric Fehr swap spots. With that in mind, here are tonight's expected lines and defensive pairings:


21-84-8_medium
Brooks Laich - Mikhail Grabovski - Alex Ovechkin

16-19-20_medium
Eric Fehr - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

25-90-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Marcus Johansson - Joel Ward

10-83-43_medium

Aaron Volpatti - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-58_medium

John Erskine - Connor Carrick

That leaves Martin Erat, Steve Oleksy and either Braden Holtby or Philipp Grubauer as a healthy scratch (with the other backing up Neuvirth), and Jack Hillen the lone injured scratch.
