Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Peters Gets the Cage, Oleksy Recalled

New, comments

For a second consecutive day, a limited morning skate means we don't really know what to expect from Barry Trotz in terms of his lines and defensive pairings. But we do know that Justin Peters will be between the pipes and that Steve Oleksy was recalled from Hershey earlier in the day (whether as insurance or to play is unclear). We'll know more as puck-drop approaches, but for now, here's what the Caps looked like to start last night's game, with the change in net:

8-19-43

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Tom Wilson

92-90-20

Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42

Jason Chimera - Eric FehrJoel Ward

21-65-83

Brooks Laich - Andre Burakovsky - Jay Beagle

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

88-38

Nate Schmidt - Jack Hillen

35

Justin Peters

That leaves Braden Holtby backing up Peters, Michael Latta and Oleksy out as healthy scratches, Mike Green on IR (but eligible to come off tomorrow) and Dmitry OrlovAaron Volpatti and John Erskine out with long-term injuries.
