Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Burakovsky's Back

Per Alex Prewitt, the Caps will swap out one 20-year-old, Tom Wilson, for another, Andre Burakovsky, as they get set to do battle with the Sharks. Looks like that is the only change to the lineup to kick off the California trip - with that in mind, here's a look at the lines and defensive pairings who will attempt not to disappoint the dads, with Braden Holtby (who rarely disappoints anyone) back between the pipes:

8-19-90

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Marcus Johansson

25-92-20

Jason Chimera - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

21-16-42

Brooks Laich - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

65-46-83

Andre Burakovsky - Michael Latta - Jay Beagle

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

38-52

Jack Hillen - Mike Green

That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby, and Wilson, Aaron Volpatti and recent call-up Steve Oleksy sitting out as today's healthy scratches, with Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still on the IR.
