Tonight's Lines: Green Returns, Erat and Laich Trade Places

New, comments

Per Adam Vingan, Mike Green will return to the lineup after missing the last three games with a lower-body injury, and Brooks Laich and Martin Erat will swap spots on the struggling second line, so this is what we should expect in front of Michal Neuvirth in net:

90-19-8

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

21-10-20_medium

Brooks Laich - Martin Erat - Troy Brouwer

25-84-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Mikhail Grabovski - Joel Ward

24-46-43_medium

Aaron Volpatti - Michael Latta - Tom Wilson

27-74_medium

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

88-52_medium

Nate Schmidt - Mike Green

34-23_medium

Alexander Urbom - Tyson Strachan

That leaves Steve OleksyEric Fehr and Jay Beagle as healthy scratches (Dmitry Orlov was reassigned to Hershey to make room for Green to come off IR), and John Erskine and Jack Hillen out with injury.
