Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Changes Up Front

Per Mike Vogel, yesterday's shuffle of the top-nine forwards at practice stuck through this morning's skate, so expect the following lines and pairs in front of Braden Holtby in net:

8-19-20

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

90-65-21

Marcus Johansson - Andre Burakovsky - Brooks Laich

25-16-42

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - 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 Justin Peters as the back-up goalie, John Erskine, Jack Hillen and Michael Latta as healthy scratches, Jay Beagle and Aaron Volpatti out with short-term injuries, and Tom Wilson and Dmitry Orlov out long-term.
