Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Bottom-Six Swap

Per Mike Vogel, Barry Trotz is swapping bottom-six left wingers, but the rest of the lines and D-pairings stay the same, so expect the Caps to look something like this in front of Braden Holtby tonight:

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

25-65-83

Jason Chimera - Andre Burakovsky - 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, Michael Latta and Liam O'Brien out as healthy scratches, Mike Green on IR (but eligible to come off any time) and Dmitry OrlovAaron Volpatti and John Erskine out with longer-term injuries.
