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.

The lines:

Alex Ovechkin - Marcus Johansson - Alexander Semin

Matt Hendricks - Brooks Laich - Troy Brouwer

Jason Chimera - Mathieu Perreault - Mike Knuble

Keith Aucoin - Jeff Halpern - Joel Ward

Jay Beagle - Joel Rechlicz
