Caps vs. Bruins 3rd Period Thread

Alex Ovechkin's 800th career NHL point was the highlight of the second period, a series of smart passes from Joel Ward and Marcus Johansson making the milestone possible early in the frame. Ward's 18th of the year gave the Capitals a three goal lead but Boston's Patrice Bergeron would cut the lead to two on a power play tally 41 seconds after Washington's last. Gregory Campbell's fourth on the season with less than three minutes remaining put Boston within one with one period to play.

Caps vs. Bruins 2nd Period Thread

Today's 8-Bit Lines: Erat a Game-Time Decision

All bets are off with the lineup today, as Martin Erat is a game-time decision - so the lines are up in the air a bit. Braden Holtby is confirmed in net, however, so here's an idea of where things could shake out provided Erat draws into the lineup:

21-19-8_medium

Brooks Laich - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

10-90-20_medium
Martin Erat - Marcus Johansson - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

90-83-43_medium

Nicolas Deschamps - 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 Casey Wellman as a potential healthy scratch, with Mikhail GrabovskiAaron Volpatti and Jack Hillen out with injuries, and Michal Neuvirth backing up Holtby.
