Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Dmitry Orlov, Martin Erat to Play

Per Katie Carrera, Dmitry Orlov will make his season debut and Martin Erat draws back into the lineup tonight against the Isles, with Braden Holtby between the pipes. As for how the lines and pairs will shake out, it's anyone's guess, but here's a good one:


Jason Chimera - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin


Eric Fehr - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer


Marcus Johansson - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward


Aaron Volpatti - Martin Erat - Tom Wilson


Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Nate Schmidt - Mike Green


Dmitry Orlov - Tyson Strachan

That leaves Steve Oleksy and Alexander Urbom as healthy scratches, Brooks Laich, John Erskine and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Philipp Grubauer backing up Holtby (additionally, Michael Latta was sent back to Hershey to make all of the moves work).
