Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Laich Out, Beagle In as Western Trip Begins

New, comments

Per Mike Vogel, Jay Beagle will make his season debut taking Brooks Laich's spot on the second/third/whatever line (with Laich having been placed on IR), and Michael Latta draws in for Chris Brown on the fourth line. Otherwise, it's status quo (at least to start), so expect the Caps to look something like this:

8-19-20

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

90-65-83

Marcus Johansson - Andre Burakovsky - Jay Beagle

87-92-46

Liam O`Brien - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Michael Latta

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

88-52

Nate Schmidt - Mike Green

70

Braden Holtby

That leaves Justin Peters as the back-up goalie, Brown and Jack Hillen as healthy scratches, Laich and Aaron Volpatti out with short-term injuries, and Tom Wilson, Dmitry Orlov and now likely John Erskine out long-term.
