The Caps will go back to Michal Neuvirth in net after his stellar effort on Friday night in the first game of this home-and-home set with Detroit, and the team will be without both Mike Green (head) and Brooks Laich (groin). Per Katie Carrera, expect the lines and d-pairings to look like this:
Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin-
Casey Wellman --
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Connor Carrick
That would leave no healthy scratches, with Green, Laich, Mikhail Grabovski and Jack Hillen all out with injuries and Braden Holtby manning the bench behind Neuvirth.
