Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Where There's a Wilson, There's a Way

Per Alex Prewitt, looks like Tom Wilson is cleared and ready to return to the lineup after taking a puck to the head in Detroit. His return will push Michael Latta to the sidelines, where he'll be joined by Andre Burakovsky. And never fear, fans - Philipp Grubauer was called up today as a precautionary measure in case Braden Holtby (who has been sick) couldn't go, but it sounds like he'll be back between the pipes.

With that in mind, here's who will be lining up in front of him:


Alex Ovechkin - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Joel Ward


Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer


Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Jay Beagle


Curtis Glencross - Brooks Laich - Tom Wilson


Brooks Orpik - John Carlson


Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen


Tim Gleason - Mike Green

Braden Holtby

That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby (with Grubauer to be returned to Hershey if his services are not needed), Burakovsky and Latta out as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine remaining out with injuries.
