Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Green Out, Green Blueline In

Per Katie Carrera, Michal Neuvirth gets his fourth consecutive start in net (update: Neuvirth is sick, Holtby will go), but the bigger story is that Julien Brouillette (making his NHL debut) and Patrick Wey (one NHL game) have been recalled from Hershey and will be in the lineup and on the blueline with Mike Green and John Erskine ailing. So here are tonight's expected lines and defensive pairings:


Martin Erat - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

Marcus Johansson - Casey Wellman - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward


Brooks Laich - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson


Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Dmitry Orlov - Connor Carrick

That leaves no healthy scratches, with Green, Erskine, Aaron Volpatti (who was placed on LTIR today), Mikhail Grabovski and Jack Hillen all out with injuries, and Braden Holtby manning the bench behind Neuvirth.
