Tonight's lineup: Bruins at Caps

Michal Neuvirth will try to be the first goaltender in the Capitals' 36-year history to start and play every minute of the team's first six games tonight as he makes his sixth consecutive start against the Bruins.

In net for Boston will be Tim Thomas, who appears to have returned to form after a disappointing 2009-10 season that was marred by injury.

Here's what the lineup should look like:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble
Laich-Fleischmann-Semin
Chimera-Johansson-Fehr
King-Steckel-Hendricks

Defense
Schultz-Alzner
Erskine-Carlson
Sloan-Poti

Goal
Neuvirth
Varlamov

Scratches against the Bruins are Boyd Gordon, Mike Green (upper-body injury) and Matt Bradley (lower-body injury).

No surprise. We'll see a repeat of the 2009-2010 season. Same approach. Complaints about defense, complaints about no depth beyond Ovie. But no serious discussion about their neutral zone performance.
