Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Welcome to the Show

New, comments

Per Mike Vogel, Liam O'Brien and Andre Burakovsky will make their NHL debut for the Caps tonight as the 2014-15 season gets underway, so expect the following lines and pairs in front of Braden Holtby in net:

8-19-16

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Eric Fehr

90-65-30

Marcus Johansson - Andre Burakovsky - Troy Brouwer

25-21-42

Jason Chimera - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward

87-92-67

Liam O`Brien - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Chris Brown

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

38-88

Jack Hillen - Nate Schmidt

That leaves John Erskine as a healthy scratch, Michael Latta, Jay Beagle and Mike Green out with short-term injuries, and Aaron Volpatti out long-term.
