Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Sticking with What Worked; Peters to Start

Per Chuck Gormley, lines and D-pairs at this morning's skate were the same as the ones that beat down Jersey the other night, so expect the following lines and pairs in front of Justin Peters (making his first start as a Cap) 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 Braden Holtby 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.
