\ Chris Bourque will begin the night on the top line with Alex Ovechkin and Michael Nylander. It will be the first game that Ovechkin and Nylander begin the game on the same line. They did take some shifts together last night.\


\ Here are the projected lines, although Hanlon said they could change quickly:\

\ Ovechkin-Nylander-Bourque\ Flesichmann-Backstrom-Kozlov\ Pettinger-Steckel-Gordon\ Brashear-Laich-Bradley\ Sutherby?\

\ Morrisonn-Eminger\ Pothier-Schultz\ Green-Erksine\ Poti?\

\ Brent Johnson will be in net for the Caps. Atlanta will go with Ondrej Pavelec in his second career start instead of Johan Hedberg. Pavelec is a 20-year old from the Czech Republic who starred in the ‘Q’ the past two seasons and could be the Thrashers Plan B in the future if Kari Lehtonen cannot stay healhty or departs.\

\ UPDATE: Poti is in the lineup and Sutherby is out.\
