Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Status Quo for Return Home

Per Mike Vogel, the Caps will go with the same lineup that earned them a win over Colorado Thursday night, with Chris Brown headed back to Hershey earlier today. Here's how the lines and defensive pairings shape up for tonight, with Braden Holtby back in net:

8-19-43

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Tom Wilson

90-65-20

Marcus Johansson - Andre Burakovsky - Troy Brouwer

25-83-42

Jason Chimera - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward

46-92-16

Michael Latta - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Eric Fehr

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, Brooks Laich and Liam O`Brien injured but possibly nearing a return, and Dmitry OrlovAaron Volpatti and John Erskine out with long-term injuries.
