Ok folks we finally have the skinny on tonight’s game.
Philipp Grubauer is in the net, giving the team a chance to redeem themselves after the embarrassing lack of support they showed on Saturday.
Taylor Chorney is in again which means Nate Schmidt is in the viewing area tonight.
The lines are as we have never seen them before as the team captain moves to the second line. This is one area that the critics have disagreed with Coach Trotz. We listed it as a weakness–the inconsistency and unraveling of cohesion. Others think the change could spark new energy. We remain optimistically skeptical…
The lines tonight, according to Isabelle Khurshudyn of WP are as follows:
Marcus Johansson-Nicklas Backstrom-T.J. Oshie
Alex Ovechkin-Jay Beagle-Andre Burakovsky
Zach Sanford-Evgeny Kuznetsov-Justin Williams
Daniel Winnik-Lars Eller-Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner-Matt Niskanen
Dmitry Orlov-John Carlson
Brooks Orpik-Taylor Chorney
Philipp Grubauer (starter)
Hang on friends- it’s gonna be a wild ride tonight. Game time is 7 pm on CSN.
