Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Flipping the Wings, Neuvirth in Net

Per Mike Vogel, Michal Neuvirth gets the call against the Penguins tonight (and here's hoping he hasn't forgotten what ol' Dan Bylsma thinks of him). In front of him, another slight change to the top-six as Brooks Laich and Eric Fehr swap spots. With that in mind, here are tonight's expected lines and defensive pairings:

Brooks Laich - Mikhail Grabovski - Alex Ovechkin

Eric Fehr - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Marcus Johansson - Joel Ward


Aaron Volpatti - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson


Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green


John Erskine - Connor Carrick

That leaves Martin Erat, Steve Oleksy and either Braden Holtby or Philipp Grubauer as a healthy scratch (with the other backing up Neuvirth), and Jack Hillen the lone injured scratch.
