Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Ovechkin, Latta Out; Burakovsky, Laich In

Alex Ovechkin missed this morning's skate and is a maybe for tonight's game against the Wild... but we're betting he plays because... well, you know, that other blog's name. [UPDATE: Ovechkin will not play after all.] (If Ovechkin can't go, Andre Burakovsky will take his place). So here's a look at what the lines and defensive pairings might look like against the Wild, with Braden Holtby between the pipes:

65-19-90

Andre Burakovsky - Nicklas Backstrom - Marcus Johansson

22-83-20

Curtis Glencross - Jay Beagle - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

21-92-43

Brooks Laich - Evgeny KuznetsovTom Wilson

44-74

Brooks Orpik - John Carlson

27-2

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen

6-52

Tim Gleason - Mike Green

70
Braden Holtby

That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Michael Latta day-to-day with an upper body injury, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine still on the IR.
