Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Ovechkin a Game-Time Decision, Holtby Takes Over

New, comments

Per Katie Carrera, Braden Holtby takes over in net and Alex Ovechkin is a game-time decision with a lower-body injury. If the captain is unable to go, here are tonight's projected lines and defensive pairings (and if he gets the green light, expect the same lineup that faced the Rangers on Sunday):

90-19-20_medium

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

25-84-16_medium

Jason Chimera - Mikhail Grabovski - Eric Fehr

10-21-42_medium

Martin Erat - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward

10-83-43_medium

Aaron Volpatti - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

88-58_medium

Nate Schmidt - Connor Carrick

That leaves John Erskine as a healthy scratch (with Steve Oleksy on his way back to Hershey), Jack Hillen and potentially Alex Ovechkin out with injury, and Michal Neuvirth serving as the team's lone backup goaltender. Huzzah.
