Tonight's Lines: Hamrlik In, Poti Out

Per Mike Vogel, Roman Hamrlik will replace Tom Poti (who had a brutal miscommunication with tonight's starter, Michal Neuvirth, on Tuesday night, and is apparently day-to-day with an upper-body injury) in the lineup as the Caps get ready to face the Pens. Here are tonight's expected line combinations and defensive pairings:

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

Wojtek Wolski - Mike Ribeiro - Alex Ovechkin

Jason Chimera - Joey Crabb - Joel Ward

Matt Hendricks - Jay Beagle - Eric Fehr

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

Roman Hamrlik - John Carlson

Jeff Schultz - Tomas Kundratek

That leaves Poti and Mathieu Perreault as scratches, Brooks Laich and Jack Hillen out with injuries, and John Erskine still suspended.
