Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Beagle in the Doghouse

New, comments

Per Alex Prewitt, looks like that first period offensive-zone penalty (that turned into a power-play goal-against) has cost Jay Beagle a spot in the lineup for the fourth and final (regular season) meeting with the Penguins. Cameron Schilling also gets another look on defense, with Jason Chimera's punch to the mug of Zac Rinaldo earning him a jersey, as well... so with all of that in mind, here's a look at what the lines and defensive pairings should be against the Penguins, with Braden Holtby between the pipes


Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Andre Burakovsky


Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer


Brooks Laich - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward


Jason Chimera - Michael LattaTom Wilson


Brooks Orpik - John Carlson


Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen


Cameron Schilling - Mike Green

Braden Holtby

That leaves Peters back on the bench behind Holtby, Beagle and Aaron Volpatti sitting out as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still on the IR.
