Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Status Quo for Return Home

New, comments

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:

8-19-65

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Andre Burakovsky

90-92-20

Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

21-16-42

Brooks Laich - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

83-46-43

Jay Beagle - Michael LattaTom Wilson

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

38-52

Jack Hillen - Mike Green

70
Braden Holtby

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.
