Per Alex Prewitt, the Caps will stick with what worked in Pittsburgh, with the same lines and defensive pairs that earned a gritty two points on the road and Braden Holtby back in net. With that in mind, here's a look at the crew set to take the ice at Verizon Center tonight:
Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Andre Burakovsky
Brooks Laich - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward
Jay Beagle - Michael Latta - Tom Wilson
That leaves Peters back on the bench behind Holtby, Steve Oleksy headed back to Hershey, Aaron Volpatti and Jason Chimera sitting out as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still on the IR.
