Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Green Possible No-Go, Neuvirth in Net

New, comments

Per Mike Vogel, the Caps will go with Michal Neuvirth for the first of the home-and-home set with Detroit, and after leaving last night's game in the first period, Mike Green is a game-time decision. Assuming Green plays, here are tonight's expected forward trios and defensive pairings:


Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

Martin Erat - Brooks Laich - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson


Eric Fehr - Casey Wellman - Joel Ward


Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green


John Erskine - Connor Carrick

That leaves Tyson Strachan (called up earlier today) joining Aaron Volpatti as a healthy scratch unless he's in for Green, with Mikhail Grabovski and Jack Hillen out with injuries and Braden Holtby manning the bench behind Neuvirth.
