Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: A Healthy Lineup is a Happy Lineup

Per Katie Carrera, the walking wounded return to the lineup and a jet-lagged Marcus Johansson pulls fourth-line duty, as Adam Oates changes things up for the team's first game back after the break. With Braden Holtby in net, here are tonight's probable lines and defensive pairings:

21-19-8_medium

Brooks Laich - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

10-84-20_medium
Martin Erat - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

90-83-43_medium

Marcus Johansson - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-58_medium

John Erskine - Connor Carrick

That leaves recent call-ups Julien Brouillette and Nicolas Deschamps chilling in the press box as healthy scratches, with Aaron Volpatti and Jack Hillen out with injuries, and Michal Neuvirth backing up Holtby.
