Per Alex Prewitt, the Caps will stick with the same lines that almost snapped the streak last time, but with one notable change - after eight games on the shelf with a shoulder injury, Brooks Laich draws back into the lineup, bumping Evgeny Kuznetsov to the press box. Here are tonight's lines and D pairs as the Caps look to get one in the win column, with Braden Holtby in net:
Nicklas Backstrom - Tom Wilson-
Jason Chimera - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward
Liam O`Brien - Michael Latta - Jay Beagle
That leaves Justin Peters wearing the baseball cap, Eric Fehr, Kuznetsov and Jack Hillen as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov, John Erskine and Aaron Volpatti all on the shelf with injuries.
