Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Gleason a Go?

No morning skate for the Caps today, but it's likely that the Caps will dress the same lineup that gritted out a win in Minny earlier this week. The one question mark (as it always seems to be these days) is on the blueline, with Tim Gleason's status up in the air. If he can't go, expect Nate Schmidt to draw back in, alongside the rest of these guys - and Braden Holtby holding down the fort in net:

8-19-90

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Marcus Johansson

22-92-20

Curtis Glencross - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

21-46-43

Brooks Laich - Michael LattaTom Wilson

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

88-52

Nate Schmidt - Mike Green

70
Braden Holtby

That would leave Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Gleason and Jay Beagle sitting out, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still on the IR.
