Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Keeping it Rolling

New, comments

No morning skate today, but it's likely that the Caps will go with the lineup that got them two points last night in Calgary, with Justin Peters taking Braden Holtby's place between the pipes. With that in mind, here are the expected lines and D pairings for tonight's matchup against the Canucks:

8-19-16

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Eric Fehr

90-65-20

Marcus JohanssonAndre Burakovsky - Troy Brouwer

25-92-83

Jason Chimera - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Jay Beagle

87-46-42

Liam O'Brien - Michael LattaJoel Ward

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

88-52

Nate Schmidt - Mike Green

35

Justin Peters

That leaves Holtby riding backup tonight, Chris Brown and Jack Hillen as healthy scratches, Brooks Laich and Aaron Volpatti out with (hopefully) short-term injuries, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine out long-term.
