Tonight’s Lines: The Returne of Ryane Clowe?

Per Katie Carrera, looks like it will be status quo for the Caps' lines tonight (with Braden Holtby in net, as usual):

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

Martin Erat - Mike Ribeiro - Troy Brouwer

Jason Chimera - Mathieu Perreault - Eric Fehr

Matt Hendricks - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

John Erskine - John Carlson

Jack Hillen - Steven Oleksy

That leaves Jeff Schultz, Wojtek Wolski, Tom Poti and Aaron Volpatti as healthy scratches, and Brooks Laich out with injury.

At the other end of the rink, things are a little less clear, as Ryane Clowe and Marc Staal may both be making their series debut (per our pals over at Blueshirt Banter). And they may not.

So… at least some of the players listed below will be on the ice in some fashion (with the one constant, Henrik Lundqvist between the pipes):

Carl Hagelin - Derek Stepan - Ryan Callahan

Mats Zuccarello - Brad Richards - Rick Nash

Taylor Pyatt - Derick Brassard - Ryane Clowe

Darroll Powe - Brian Boyle - Derek Dorsett

Ryan McDonagh - Dan Girardi

Anton Stralman - John Moore

Michael Del Zotto -- Steve Eminger / Marc Staal
