Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Jay Beagle, Top-Line Winger

New, comments

Per Alex Prewitt, Tom Wilson and Brooks Laich will sit out against the Blue Jackets with various bumps and bruises... which means a return to everyone's favorite thing in the world, Jay Beagle back on the top line. With that little addition (and Braden Holtby back between the pipes), here's what tonight's lines and defensive pairings should look like:

8-19-83

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Jay Beagle

90-65-20

Marcus Johansson - Andre Burakovsky- Troy Brouwer

25-16-42

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

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 backing up Holtby, Jack Hillen as a healthy scratch, and Laich, Wilson, Dmitry Orlov, John Erskine and Aaron Volpatti all out with injuries.
