Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: Fourth-Line Flip

Per Mike Vogel, the line shake-up by Barry Trotz ahead of the last game remains largely intact for tonight's battle with Ottawa... with one exception, as the fourth line gets yet another makeover. Michael Latta is back in, which pushes Jay Beagle to the wing and Tom Wilson to the pressbox, and Aaron Volpatti skates in his second-consecutive game after making his season debut on Tuesday. With that in mind, here's a look at tonight's lines and defensive pairs, with Braden Holtby back between the pipes:

8-19-90

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Marcus Johansson

65-92-20

Andre Burakovsky - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

21-16-42

Brooks Laich - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

17-46-83

Aaron Volpatti - Michael Latta - Jay Beagle

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

38-52

Jack Hillen - Mike Green

70

Braden Holtby

That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Wilson and Jason Chimera as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still on the IR.
