Projected lineup for the Capitals
Here's what the lineup for the Washington Capitals likely will look like when they take the ice tonight against the Florida Panthers. The Panthers, who beat the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, didn't skate today, but likely will stick with the same lines with one change -- top prospect Jacob Markstrom likely will play his second NHL game tonight in goal.

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer
Alexander Semin - Marcus Johansson - Mike Knuble
Jason Chimera - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward
Matt Hendricks - Mathieu Perreault - Jeff Halpern

Karl Alzner - John Carlson
Roman Hamrlik - Mike Green
Jeff Schultz - Dennis Wideman

Tomas Vokoun will start in goal, with Dany Sabourin recalled from AHL Hershey to serve as the backup.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
