Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Gleason Expected to Debut

New, comments

With no morning skate today it's anyone's guess as to what tonight's lines might look like, but newcomer Tim Gleason (acquired yesterday) is expected to make his Caps debut, while Curtis Glencross (acquired earlier today) is not). So, based on yesterday's practice, here's a look at what the lines and defensive pairings might look like against the Leafs, with Braden Holtby (presumably) between the pipes:

8-19-90

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Marcus Johansson

65-92-20

Andre Burakovsky - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

21-83-43

Brooks Laich - Jay BeagleTom Wilson

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

6-52

Tim Gleason - Mike Green

70
Braden Holtby

That would leave Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Michael Latta and Glencross as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still on the IR.
