Lightning Vs. Capitals: Tomas Vokoun To Earn Eighth Consecutive Start, Cody Eakin To Replace Mathieu Perreault

BALLSTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals prepared for their game with the Tampa Bay Lightning Friday during their typical morning skate at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Not much changed in the lineup with regards to personnel, but there were some major changes to the line combinations:

Alex Ovechkin - Marcus Johansson - Alexander Semin

Mike Knuble - Brooks Laich - Troy Brouwer

Matt Hendricks - Jeff Halpern - Joel Ward

Jason Chimera - Cody Eakin - Jay Beagle

The defense, however, should remain the same:

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Dmitry Orlov - Dennis Wideman

Roman Hamrlik - Tomas Kundratek

Tomas Vokoun left the ice first and should earn his eighth consecutive start. Vokoun made 30 saves in a 1-0 shutout of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

John Erskine, Jeff Schultz, Mathieu Perreault and Michal Neuvirth took part in extra work and will be the likely scratches Friday.
