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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
