The Pregame: You Will See a Different Top Line Tonight vs. Edmonton

michael banner 2We are under an hour away until puck drop. The Washington Capitals will host Connor McDavid and the Oilers on Monday night and our Twitter King will be in attendance. Washington will look to bounce back from a two-game winless slide and stopping McDavid and former Cap Alex Chiasson will be key to victory. Here’s how the team will line up based on the rushes from morning skate. A quick guide before we watch the game. 

There will be a new player on the top line next to Evgeny Kuznetsov and Alex Ovechkin. It’ll be Dmitrij Jaskin. Jakub Vrana got moved down to the fourth line. The Capitals will welcome back Travis Boyd from a lower-body injury as he’ll center that fourth line. Nic Dowd will be a healthy scratch.

Brooks Orpik did not skate at MedStar Capitals Iceplex and he’s still day-to-day with a lower body injury. Pheonix Copley will get the start in between the pipes.

Puck drop from 7th and F Street is at 7 p.m.
