Tonight's Lines: Neuvirth to Start, Schmidt to Make NHL Debut

Per Katie Carrera, here are tonight's lines, with Michal Neuvirth making his first start of the season and Nate Schmidt getting his first NHL game:

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

Brooks Laich - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

Martin Erat - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

Alexander Urbom - John Carlson

Nate Schmidt - Steve Oleksy

Schmidt draws in for an injured John Erskine, while Aaron Volpatti sits again as healthy scratch and Braden Holtby wears the baseball cap on the bench (Connor Carrick and Michael Latta were re-assigned to Hershey yesterday).
