Per the Caps, Philipp Grubauer is back in net for the Caps as they host the Sharks, with the rest of the lineup likely remaining the same in front of him from Sunday's loss to Buffalo. Here are tonight's lines and defensive pairings:
Brooks Laich - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer
Eric Fehr - - Alex Ovechkin
Jason Chimera - Marcus Johansson - Joel Ward
Aaron Volpatti - - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Connor Carrick
That would leave Martin Erat, Steve Oleksy and one of Braden Holtby or Michal Neuvirth as healthy scratches (with the other wearing the baseball cap), and Jack Hillen the lone injured scratch.
