Today's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Reunited and It Feels So Good

Per Alex Prewitt, Barry Trotz has returned to sanity and put Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom back together again for Game 3, after the two sparked Friday night's comeback. Andre Burakovsky and Michael Latta remain in the pressbox for the team's first trip to Nassau Coliseum, and it does sound like Braden Holtby is ready to go - for real this time. So with that in mind, here's what the lines and defensive pairings should look like in front of him:


Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Joel Ward


Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - 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, Burakovsky and Latta out as healthy scratches, and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine remaining out with injuries.
