Per Katie Carrera, Brooks Laich will miss this evening's game with a
turkey hangover lower-body injury and will be replaced in the lineup by Jay Beagle, so expect the following lines and pairs in front of Michal Neuvirth in net (update: Neuvirth was injured in warm-ups, so Braden Holtby will start):
Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin
Eric Fehr - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer
Jason Chimera - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward
Aaron Volpatti - Michael Latta - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
That leaves Steve Oleksy as a healthy scratch, Laich, John Erskine and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Martin Erat in purgatory.
