Sabres Vs. Capitals: Starting Lineup

Below is tonight's starting lineup for the Washington Capitals as they prepare to face off against the Buffalo Sabres at Verizon Center. Head coach Bruce Boudreau, who has a tendency to switch lines on a regular basis, has done so again.

Alex Ovechkin - Marcus Johansson - Mike Knuble

Brooks Laich- Nicklas Backstrom - Alexander Semin

Marco Sturm - Jason Arnott - Eric Fehr

Jason Chimera - Boyd Gordon - Matt Bradley

On defense, the pairings are:

Jeff Schultz - Scott Hannan

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

Sean Collins - Tyler Sloan

Michael Neuvirth is in goal for the Capitals and will be opposed by the Sabres' Jhonas Enroth. The Capitals recalled Collins from AHL Hershey Saturday to replace John Erskine, who is not playing after he suffered an undisclosed injury during Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The defensive corps is already without Mike Green, Tom Poti and Dennis Wideman.
