Tonight's Lines: Sticking with What Worked

Per Stephen Whyno, the Caps will roll with the same lineup that they trotted out Saturday night in their 5-0 win over tonight's opponent, Florida, so expect to see the following line combinations and defensive pairings in front of Braden Holtby:

Jason Chimera - Mike Ribeiro - Alex Ovechkin

Wojtek Wolski - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

Eric Fehr - Mathieu Perreault - Joel Ward

Matt Hendricks - Jay Beagle - Joey Crabb

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

John Erskine - John Carlson

Jeff Schultz - Tomas Kundratek

That leaves Roman Hamrlik as a healthy scratch, Brooks Laich and Jack Hillen out with injuries, and Tom Poti and Marcus Johansson perhaps somewhere in between (though both reportedly have or have had upper-body ouchies goin' on).
