Today's 8-Bit Lines: Holtby Goes for Five

Per Mike Vogel, Braden Holtby gets the nod in net for his fifth-straight start (with the team looking for its fifth-straight win). With Martin Erat a game-time decision yet again and Mikhail Grabovski still ailing, the lines and defensive pairings could look something like this:

21-19-8_medium

Brooks Laich - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

10-90-20_medium
Martin Erat - Marcus Johansson - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

90-83-43_medium

Nicolas Deschamps - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-52_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Mike Green

4-58_medium

John Erskine - Connor Carrick

That leaves Casey Wellman as a potential healthy scratch, with Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti out with injuries, Jack Hillen headed to Hershey for another conditioning stint and Michal Neuvirth backing up Holtby.
