Alex Ovechkin’s back Saturday, in his familiar spot as first-line left wing. Beyond that and a consistent second line of Matt Hendricks, Brooks Laich and Troy Brouwer, the Washington Capitals’ lines were all jumbled up.
That included Keith Aucoin on a line with Jeff Halpern and Joel Ward and enforcer Joel Rechlicz and Jay Beagle in baby blue jerseys.
Rechlicz was put on waivers Friday, coach Dale Hunter confirmed.
Alex Ovechkin - Marcus Johansson - Alexander Semin
