Vokoun to start, lineup unknown for Caps
NEWARK, N.J. -- Tomas Vokoun will start in net for the Capitals tonight at Prudential Center, but the rest of Washington's lineup won't be determined until later today.

Mike Green will likely get back in after missing six games, but for now he's considered a game-time decision.

Matt Hendricks will also be a game-time decision because his wife, Kim, gave birth to twins Gunnar and Lennon on Thursday. Hendricks was not here this morning, but is supposed to be on his way and should arrive before the game. There is no word on if he will play.

It is also possible that Marcus Johansson swaps with Nicklas Backstrom to play center between Alex Ovechkin and Troy Brouwer. Johansson missed Thursday's practice, but Mathieu Perreault (healthy scratch if Hendricks plays) was in between Ovechkin and Brouwer while Backstrom was centering Alex Semin and Brooks Laich.

It looks like we'll all have to wait until pre-game warmups to figure anything out about the Capitals lineup tonight.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
