Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Burakovsky Sits (Again), Green Out (Again)

Per Alex Prewitt, the Caps will go with the status quo - right down to putting Andre Burakovsky in the pressbox - as they get set to face the Lightning. Here's a look at the probable lines and D pairings patrolling the ice 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

25-46-83

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, Mike Green still on the shelf for at least one more game and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine out with longer-term injuries (with Aaron Volpatti en route to Hershey for some conditioning).
