Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Green Possible No-Go, Neuvirth in Net

Per Mike Vogel, the Caps will go with Michal Neuvirth for the first of the home-and-home set with Detroit, and after leaving last night's game in the first period, Mike Green is a game-time decision. Assuming Green plays, here are tonight's expected forward trios 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 Tyson Strachan (called up earlier today) joining Aaron Volpatti as a healthy scratch unless he's in for Green, with Mikhail Grabovski and Jack Hillen out with injuries and Braden Holtby manning the bench behind Neuvirth.
