Here are the potential lineups for tonight's game between the Capitals and Senators at the Verizon Center in Washington.

Jason Chimera - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward
Matt Hendricks - Mathieu Perreault - Jeff Halpern

Karl Alzner - John Carlson
Roman Hamrlik - Mike Green

The Washington Post is reporting D.J. King also could draw into this game, replacing Perreault. If that happens, Kings would play right wing and Halpern would shift to center.

Tomas Vokoun likely will start in goal, as Michal Neuvirth was kept off the ice. Dany Sabourin was recalled AHL Hershey to serve as the backup, if needed.

Milan Michalek - Jason Spezza - Mika Zibanejad
Colin Greening - Stephane Da Costa - Daniel Alfredsson
Nick Foligno - Peter Regin - Chris Neil
Zack Smith - Zenon Konopka - Erik Condra

Defenseman Brian Lee will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game. Bobby Butler will sit out with a groin injury.

Craig Anderson will start in goal, with Alex Auld the backup.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
