Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Shuffling the Top Six, Laich Returns

New, comment

Per Katie Carrera, Adam Oates is going with a new-look lineup against the Hurricanes as he shuffles up his forwards. Brooks Laich is making (yet another) return to the lineup, and with Philipp Grubauer back in net once more, here are tonight's expected lines and defensive pairings:

90-19-20_medium

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

16-84-8_medium

Eric FehrMikhail Grabovski - Alex Ovechkin

25-10-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Martin Erat - Joel Ward

21-83-43_medium

Brooks Laich - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-61_medium

John Erskine - Steve Oleksy

That leaves Aaron VolpattiAlexander Urbom and Michal Neuvirth as healthy scratches, Michael Latta and Jack Hillen out with injury, and Braden Holtby working the bench as Grubauer's backup.
