Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Yes, Jay Beagle is Still a Top-Line Center

New, comments

Per Katie Carrera, expect the same lineup that rolled through California as they play host to... well, a team from California. And yes, that means Jay Beagle remains on the "top" line (hooray!).

After a night off, Jaroslav Halak returns to the crease, with these lines and defensive pairings in front of him:


Marcus Johansson - Jay Beagle - Alex Ovechkin


Evgeny Kuznetsov - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward


Dustin Penner - Chris Brown - Tom Wilson


Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Jack Hillen - Mike Green

Dmitry Orlov - Patrick Wey

That leaves Connor Carrick out as a healthy scratch, Brooks Laich, John Erskine, Mikhail Grabovski and Aaron Volpatti out with injuries, and Braden Holtby back on the bench as Halak's backup.
