Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Mike Green's Return to Action

New, comments

Per the Washington Post's Alex Prewitt, Mike Green makes his return to the lineup in Boston as Barry Trotz's team looks to bounce back after a late let-down in the season opener. Expect the following lines and pairs in front of Braden Holtby in net:

8-19-16

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Eric Fehr

90-65-30

Marcus Johansson - Andre Burakovsky - Troy Brouwer

25-21-42

Jason Chimera - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward

87-92-67

Liam O`Brien - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Chris Brown

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

88-52

Nate Schmidt - Mike Green

That leaves John ErskineJack Hillen, and Michael Latta as the healthy scratches, Jay Beagle, Aaron Volpatti, and Tom Wilson out with short-term injuries, and Dmitry Orlov still shelved with a wrist injury.
