Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Forward Shake-Up, Wilson to Debut (?) and Hockey Fights Cancer

Per reports out of Kettler, tonight's lineup is going to look an awful lot like yesterday's lines (which could include Tom Wilson's season debut), so expect the following lines and pairs in front of Braden Holtby in net as the Caps host Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night (donate here):

8-65-42 HFC

Alex Ovechkin - Andre Burakovsky - Joel Ward

90-19-20 HFC

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer

25-92-83 HFC

Jason Chimera - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Jay Beagle

87-46-43 HFC

Liam O`Brien - Michael Latta - Tom Wilson

44-74 HFC

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2 HFC

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

88-52 HFC

Nate Schmidt - Mike Green

70 HFC

Braden Holtby

Note: Wilson may not be ready to go, in which case Eric Fehr will draw in (rather than be healthy-scratched). That leaves Justin Peters as the back-up goalie, Fehr as a potential healthy scratch, Brooks Laich and Aaron Volpatti out with short-term injuries, and Dmitry Orlov out longer-term.
