Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: More of the Same, Except on the Fourth Line

New, comments

Per Mike Vogel, it looks like the Caps will stick with what's working, with one possible exception - Liam O'Brien is a game-time decision and Chris Brown has been recalled to potentially take his place. So here's what tonight's lines and defensive pairings should look like (more or less) in front of Braden Holtby in net:

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

46-92-67

Michael Latta - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Chris Brown

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 O'Brien (assuming he's out), Brooks Laich (place on IR retroactively earlier in the day), Tom WilsonDmitry Orlov, John Erskine and Aaron Volpatti all out with injuries.
