Tonight's Lines: Perreault, Wolski In; Schilling to Debut

New, comments

Per Stephen Whyno, Mathieu Perreault and Wojtek Wolski will return to the lineup tonight in place of Joey Crabb and Aaron Volpatti, while Cameron Schilling will make his NHL debut as both John Erskine and Tom Poti are ailing. So expect the lines and defensive pairings in front of Braden Holtby to look like this:

Marcus Johansson - Mike Ribeiro - Alex Ovechkin

Eric Fehr - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

Jason Chimera - Matt Hendricks - Joel Ward

Wojtek Wolski - Mathieu Perreault - Jay Beagle

Karl Alzner - Tomas Kundratek

Jeff Schultz - John Carlson

Cameron Schilling - Steve Oleksy

That leaves Erskine, Poti, Mike Green, Brooks Laich and Jack Hillen all out with injuries, and Crabb and Volpatti out healthy.
