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
Evgeny Kuznetsov - Jay Beagle -
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
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.
