Per Mike Vogel, Brooks Laich is out of the lineup, and Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dustin Penner are swapping spots, so expect these forward lines and D-pairings in front of Jaroslav Halak (yet again):
Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin-
Dustin Penner - Jay Beagle -
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
Dmitry Orlov - Connor Carrick
So that leaves Laich, John Erskine, Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti out with injurie, and Braden Holtby backing up Halak.
