John Erskine is not on the ice for warmups, so either Karl Alzner or Tyler Sloan is about 35 minutes from making his NHL playoff debut.

UPDATE: Sloan took the reps with Brian Pothier during the warmup. Here is what the lineup would be based on the line rushes:

Ovechkin-Fedorov-Kozlov

Fleischmann-Backstrom-Semin

Laich-Steckel-Bradley

Fehr-Gordon-Clark

Morrisonn-Green

Poti-Jurcina

Sloan-Pothier

Varlamov

We’ll see if Bruce Boudreau is playing games or not in a few minutes.

UPDATE: Sloan is officially in and Alzner is officially out. That’s certainly a mild surprise.
