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

New, comments

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:

10-19-8_medium

Martin Erat - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

90-48-20_medium
Marcus Johansson - Casey Wellman - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

21-83-43_medium

Brooks Laich - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-58_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Connor Carrick

59-56_medium

Julien BrouillettePatrick Wey

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.
