Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Yes, Jay Beagle is Still a Top-Line Center

Per Katie Carrera, expect the same lineup that rolled through California as they play host to... well, a team from California. And yes, that means Jay Beagle remains on the "top" line (hooray!).

After a night off, Jaroslav Halak returns to the crease, with these lines and defensive pairings in front of him:

90-83-8_medium

Marcus Johansson - Jay Beagle - Alex Ovechkin

92-19-20_medium

Evgeny Kuznetsov - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

17-44-43_medium

Dustin Penner - Chris Brown - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

38-52_medium
Jack Hillen - Mike Green

81-56_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Patrick Wey

That leaves Connor Carrick out as a healthy scratch, Brooks Laich, John Erskine, Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti out with injuries, and Braden Holtby back on the bench as Halak's backup.
