Today's 8-Bit Lines: Laich Out, Kuznetsov Up, Penner Down

Per Mike Vogel, Brooks Laich is out of the lineup, and Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dustin Penner are swapping spots, so expect these forward lines and D-pairings in front of Jaroslav Halak (yet again):

90-19-8_medium

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

92-48-20_medium

Evgeny Kuznetsov - Casey Wellman - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

17-83-43_medium

Dustin Penner - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

38-52_medium
Jack Hillen - Mike Green

81-58_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Connor Carrick

So that leaves Laich, John Erskine, Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti out with injurie, and Braden Holtby backing up Halak.
