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

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
