Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Burakovsky Returns, Chimera Sits

Per Alex Prewitt, Andre Burakovsky returns to active duty after three games out as a healthy scratch, and will be replaced in the pressbox by Jason Chimera. That one change aside, the rest of the lineup remains roughly the same as it looked on Thursday, with the following lines and defensive pairings expected in front of Braden Holtby:

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

65-46-83

Andre Burakovsky - Michael Latta - Jay Beagle

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, Chimera and Jack Hillen out as healthy scratches, Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still out with long-term injuries and Aaron Volpatti rehabbing in Hershey.
