Tonight's Lines: Win and Stay In

Per Stephen Whyno, more of the same from the Caps, who are expected to ice the same lineup that has beaten the other Florida team twice in a row. 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).
