With nothing but pride left to play for (...if that) for either team, here's a stab in the dark at what tonight's forward lines and defensive pairings could look like for the Caps as they take on the 'Canes (with Braden Holtby in net):
Mikhail Grabovski - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin
Evgeny Kuznetsov - Marcus Johansson - Troy Brouwer
Dustin Penner - Jay Beagle -
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
Dmitry Orlov - Connor Carrick
That leaves Green, Wey, Hillen, Brooks Laich out with injuries, Aaron Volpatti and John Erskine as healthy scratches, and Jaroslav Halak serving as Holtby's backup for the evening.
