The Caps continue to have a banged-up blue line, as they will be without Mike Green, Patrick Wey and Jack Hillen when they take on the Blues tonight. The forward lines get a bit of a revamp, as well, and Braden Holtby gets the nod after Jaroslav Halak expressed a desire to not face his former team (a fact which Adam Oates made sure to make public, nice guy that he is).
Here's a look at what tonight's forward lines and defensive pairings could look like for the Caps in St. Louis tonight:
Mikhail Grabovski - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin
Evgeny Kuznetsov - Marcus Johansson - Troy Brouwer
Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward
Aaron Volpatti - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Dmitry Orlov
That leaves Green, Wey, Hillen, Brooks Laich and possibly Dustin Penner out with injuries, and Halak serving as Holtby's backup for the evening.
