Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Halak It a Lot

No, Evgeny Kuznetsov won't be in the lineup - yet - but another new Cap will be, as Jaroslav Halak makes his debut for the Caps as they play host to the Coyotes. Meanwhile Casey Wellman has been called up and could be in the lineup either in place of Ryan Stoa or Brooks Laich, who is a game-time decision.

So as has become a trend, all bets are off on tonight's lineup - but here's what we think the lines and defensive pairs could look like:

90-19-8_medium

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

17-83-20_medium

Dustin Penner - Jay Beagle - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

44-48-43_medium

Chris Brown - Casey Wellman - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

38-58_medium
Jack Hillen - Connor Carrick

That possibly puts Ryan Stoa out as healthy scrach, Laich potentially out with injury, John Erskine, Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti definitely out with injuries, and Braden Holtby backing up Halak.
