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.
