Tonight's lineup: Thrashers at Caps

By Katie Carrera

A third of the way through the 2010-11 regular season and the Capitals are set for their fifth meeting of the year against the Atlanta Thrashers. Semyon Varlamov will be in net for Washington and Ondrej Pavelec for Atlanta as both teams look to bounce back from losses in their previous outings that snapped winning streaks.

John Erskine did not take part in warm ups and will not appear against the Thrashers. In Thursday's contest against Dallas, Erskine collided with Toby Petersen in the first period and left the game briefly after being very slow to get up and make his way to the bench. It could be lingering effects from that incident that are keeping him out of the lineup tonight.

Here's what the lineup should look like:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble
Laich-Johansson-Semin
Chimera-Gordon-Fehr
Hendricks-Steckel-Bradley

Defense
Schultz-Green
Alzner-Carlson
Sloan-Hannan

Goal
Varlamov
Neuvirth

Scratches: Tom Poti (groin), John Erskine and D.J. King.

can't complain w/erskine sitting after getting banged up, good luck sloan....it would have been a little more reassuring seeing DJK tonight to keep Boulton/Thorburn/Eager/Bufglien in check, the boys better be ready to show hendricks and bradley a little support if/when needed...GO CAPS, KICK ATLANTA'S A@@

How come states that vote democrat typically have a wider income gap between the rich and the poor than states that vote republican?

Why are democrats trying to eliminate the middle class?

Why do democrats hate business owners who at the very least provide jobs or healthcare or etc. yet they love vain entertainers who only care about themselves?

@icehammer- BTW, I did finally respond to your post about a forward getting out of position vs. a d-man from a few days ago. Sorry it was late but as I said in that reply, I know you've been on here long enough to know what a sporadic poster I am and I'm too lazy to go back to find it and re-post. :)

Isn't North Korea the perfect example of what life on earth would be like without religion?
