How does the cliche go? If it ain’t broke … Bruce Boudreau won’t change lines up?
That seems to be the case with the Capitals rolling along, as the combinations are just as they’ve been:
Alex Ovechkin – Nicklas Backstrom – Troy Brouwer
Alexander Semin – Marcus Johansson – Mike Knuble
Jason Chimera – Brooks Laich – Joel Ward
Matt Hendricks – Mathieu Perreault- Jeff Halpern (D.J. King)
Defensive pairs are the same Wednesday as they were Tuesday:
Karl Alzner – John Carlson
Roman Hamrlik – Dennis Wideman
Jeff Schultz – Sean Collins
Jay Beagle, John Erskine and Mike Green were not on the ice for Wednesday’s practice. Beagle and Erskine did not make the trip.
