Tonight's Lines: Green, Backstrom and Chimera All In

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Per Mike Vogel, Mike Green will make his return to the lineup tonight (Jeff Schultz will sit), and Nicklas Backstrom and Jason Chimera - both of whom were questionable yesterday - are in. Expect to see these lines and defensive pairings in front of Braden Holtby in net:

Jason Chimera - Mike Ribeiro - Alex Ovechkin

Eric Fehr - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

Wojtek Wolski - Mathieu Perreault - Joel Ward

Matt Hendricks - Jay Beagle - Joey Crabb

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

John Erskine - John Carlson

Tom Poti - Tomas Kundratek

That leaves Schultz, Roman Hamrlik and recently recalled Casey Wellman as healthy scratches, and Brooks Laich, Jack Hillen and Marcus Johansson (who was retroactively placed on injured reserve today) out with injuries.
