Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Stan the Man

Per Alex Prewitt, the Caps will send out an all-rookie fourth line to face the Bruins tonight, with emergency recall Stanislav Galiev set to make his NHL debut. Since Eric Fehr is still ailing a bit, the third line gets a bit of a shuffle but the top six remain mostly in tact from Sunday's big win in Detroit. With that in mind (and with Braden Holtby starting his franchise-record 24th straight) here's a look at tonight's lines and defensive pairings:


Alex Ovechkin - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Joel Ward


Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer


Curtis Glencross - Brooks Laich - Jason Chimera


Andre Burakovsky - Michael Latta - Stanislav Galiev


Brooks Orpik - John Carlson


Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen


Tim Gleason - Mike Green

Braden Holtby

That leaves Justin Peters backing up Holtby, Fehr and Tom Wilson out day to day with assorted bumps and bruises, and Dmitry Orlov, Jay Beagle and John Erskine remaining out with injuries.
