Per Mike Vogel, Philipp Grubauer will be back in net for the second straight night after facing just 17 shots against Buffalo, and per Katie Carrera, no Brooks Laich... again. Here are tonight's expected lines and defensive pairings:
Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin
Eric Fehr - - Troy Brouwer
Jason Chimera - - Joel Ward
Aaron Volpatti - - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Steve Oleksy
That leaves Alexander Urbom and Michal Neuvirth as healthy scratches, Brooks Laich, Michael Latta and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Braden Holtby serving as the evening's backup goaltender.
