Per Katie Carrera, Michal Neuvirth gets his third consecutive start in net while Brooks Laich gets eased back into game action and Mike Green misses another game with a concussion. Here are tonight's expected lines and defensive pairings:
Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin-
Casey Wellman --
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Connor Carrick
That would leave no healthy scratches, with Green, Aaron Volpatti, Mikhail Grabovski and Jack Hillen all out with injuries and Braden Holtby manning the bench behind Neuvirth.
