Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Second-Line Swivel

New, comments

Per Katie Carrera, the Caps could be without two veteran centers tonight, with Mikhail Grabovski not making the trip and Brooks Laich a gametime decision. Assuming Laich goes, here are the projected lines and defensive pairings in front of Braden Holtby, who has the crease tonight::

90-19-8_medium

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

10-21-20_medium
Martin Erat - Brooks Laich - Troy Brouwer

25-83-43_medium

Jason Chimera - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

16-48-42_medium

Eric Fehr - Casey Wellman - Joel Ward

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-58_medium

John Erskine - Connor Carrick

Ryan Stoa (recalled from Hershey earlier today) will either join Aaron Volpatti as a healthy scratch or sub in for Laich on the second line, with Grabovski and Jack Hillen out with injuries and Michal Neuvirth backing up Holtby.
