Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Status Quo for Three-in-a-Row (Including Dmitry Orlov in the Top-Four)

Per Katie Carrera, Braden Holtby returns to the Caps cage to backstop the same lineup that won at MSG on Sunday night, so expect to see the following line combinations and defensive pairings (including Dmitry Orlov sticking in a top-four role):

90-19-8

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

16-84-20_medium

Eric Fehr - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer

25-10-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Martin Erat - Joel Ward

24-83-43_medium

Aaron Volpatti - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-52_medium

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

81-74_medium

Dmitry Orlov - John Carlson

88-61_medium

Nate Schmidt - Steve Oleksy

That leaves Alexander Urbom as a  healthy scratch (Patrick Wey was returned to Hershey today), Michal Neuvirth, Brooks Laich, John Erskine and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Philipp Grubauer backing up Holtby.
