With Alex Ovechkin's return to the lineup possible for tonight, Mikhail Grabovski's status unclear after he missed the end of last night's game with a lower-body ailment and Casey Wellman recalled from Hershey (Nate Schmidt was sent down), not much is clear as to what tonight's forward lines will look like, but here's a guess as to what we'll see in front of Braden Holtby in net if the captain and Grabo can't go...
Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer
Joel Ward- -
Aaron Volpatti - Casey Wellman - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Connor Carrick
That would leave Ovechkin, Grabovski and Jack Hillen out with injuries, and Michal Neuvirth backing up Holtby.
