Per Katie Carrera, here are tonight's projected lines and defensive pairings, with Brooks Laich returning from an 11-game absence and Philipp Grubauer getting the nod in net:
Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin
Eric Fehr - - Troy Brouwer
Jason Chimera - Martin Erat - Joel Ward
Brooks Laich - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Steve Oleksy
That would leave Alexander Urbom and Michal Neuvirth as healthy scratches, Michael Latta and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Braden Holtby serving as the evening's backup goaltender.
