Today's 8-Bit Lines: Green, Laich Out; Neuvirth in Net

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:

10-19-8_medium

Martin Erat - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

90-83-20_medium
Marcus Johansson - Jay Beagle - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

24-48-43_medium

Aaron Volpatti - Casey Wellman - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-23_medium

Dmitry Orlov - Tyson Strachan

4-58_medium

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.
