Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Rolling On, Holtby in Net

Per Katie Carrera, the Caps will go with the same lineup that eked out an overtime victory Tuesday night, with Braden Holtby making his third consecutive start in net. Here are tonight's expected lines and defensive pairings:

90-19-8_medium

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

10-21-20_medium
Martin Erat - Brooks Laich - Troy Brouwer

25-83-43_medium

Jason Chimera - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

16-48-42_medium

Eric Fehr - Casey Wellman - Joel Ward

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-58_medium

John Erskine - Connor Carrick

That leaves Ryan Stoa and Aaron Volpatti as healthy scratches, with Mikhail Grabovski and Jack Hillen out with injuries and Michal Neuvirth backing up Holtby.
