Tonight's Lines: Johansson In, Perreault Out

Per Stephen Whyno, based on the morning skate it looks as if Marcus Johansson is back in the lineup in place of Mathieu Perreault on the fourth line, but otherwise everything - including Alex Ovechkin's linemates - is the same. So expect these lines to start in front of Michal Neuvirth, who will (perhaps surprisingly) be making his fifth-straight start in net:

Alex Ovechkin - Jay Beagle - Joey Crabb

Wojtek Wolski - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

Jason Chimera - Mike Ribeiro - Joel Ward

Matt Hendricks - Marcus Johansson - Eric Fehr

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

John Erskine - John Carlson

Jeff Schultz - Tomas Kundratek

That leaves Tom Poti, Roman Hamrlik and Perreault as healthy scratches and Brooks Laich (who skated with the team this morning) and Jack Hillen out with injuries.
