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

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:


Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin


Brooks Laich - Martin Erat - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Mikhail Grabovski - Joel Ward


Aaron Volpatti - Michael Latta - Tom Wilson


Karl Alzner - John Carlson


Nate Schmidt - Mike Green


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.
