Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Top-Line Chimera? Top Line Chimera.

Per Mike Vogel, Barry Trotz was messing with the lines again at today's morning skate... and while there's no way to know whether he was being serious or just funning with us again, we'll take it at face value (for now). Here's a look at what those delightful line combos and defensive pairings could look like tonight, in front of Braden Holtby, who gets his 13th-straight start:

25-19-8

Jason Chimera - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

92-90-20

Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

21-16-42

Brooks Laich - Eric FehrJoel Ward

83-46-43

Jay BeagleMichael Latta - Tom Wilson

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

38-52

Jack Hillen - Mike Green

70

Braden Holtby

That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Andre Burakovsky and Nate Schmidt out as healthy scratches, and Dmitry OrlovJohn Erskine and Aaron Volpatti still on the IR.
