Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Green Light for Mike Green

Per Alex Prewitt, Mike Green returns from a seven-game absence tonight to face the Jackets, sliding into his old spot alongside Nate Schmidt on the blueline. With the forward lines unchanged from the last two wins, here's a look at what the lineup should be, with the back-to-form Braden Holtby manning the crease as usual:

8-19-43

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Tom Wilson

92-90-20

Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

21-16-42

Brooks Laich - Eric FehrJoel Ward

25-46-83

Jason Chimera - Michael Latta - Jay Beagle

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

38-88

Jack Hillen - Nate Schmidt

70

Braden Holtby

That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Burakovsky out as a healthy scratch for his third-straight game (joining Jack Hillen), and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine out with longer-term injuries.
