Who's playing where for the Caps tonight?
Here is what the Washington Capitals' lineup likely will look like when they play the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US). We had the Penguins lines earlier.

Alexander Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer
Alexander Semin - Marcus Johansson - Mike Knuble
Jason Chimera - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward
Matt Hendricks - Jeff Halpern - Jay Beagle
 
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
Roman Hamrlik - Mike Green
Jeff Schultz - Dennis Wideman

With the injury to Michal Neuvirth, Tomas Vokoun will get the start in goal. Braden Holtby was recalled from AHL Hershey to serve as the backup.
 
Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
