Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Flipping the D

New, comments

Per Katie Carrera, the Caps will likely go with the same forward lines as Tuesday night but will shake things up a bit on the blue line, moving Jack Hillen up to the second pair with Mike Green and dropping Dmitry Orlov back to play with Connor Carrick. With Jaroslav Halak back in net, here's a look at tonight's probable lines and defensive pairings:


Brooks Laich - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin


Dustin Penner - Marcus Johansson - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward


Evgeny Kuznetsov - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson


Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Jack Hillen - Mike Green

Dmitry Orlov - Connor Carrick

So that leaves Casey Wellman out as a healthy scratch, with John Erskine, Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti out with injurie, and Braden Holtby backing up Halak.
