Caps Pregame Update 

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.dsc_0156

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:

Forwards

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

Defensemen

Karl Alzner-Matt Niskanen

Dmitry Orlov-John Carlson

Brooks Orpik-Taylor Chorney
Goaltenders

Hang on friends- it’s gonna be a wild ride tonight. Game time is 7  pm on CSN.
