Tonight's lineup: Caps at Bruins

Unlike Tuesday night, the Capitals will face a rather seasoned Bruins lineup tonight at TD Garden as Boston has dressed most of its NHL regulars for the final contest before the Bruins head overseas to open the regular season as part of the NHL Premiere in Prague.

Nicklas Backstrom is wearing the captain's "C" while Matt Bradley and David Steckel have the "A". Based on warm ups, here are the Capitals lines and defensive pairings for the game:

Forwards
Johansson-Backstrom-Fehr
Chimera-Perreault-A.Gordon
Hendricks-B.Gordon-Bradley
Steckel-Beagle-Pinizzotto

Defense
Schultz-Carlson
Erskine-Alzner
Sloan-Fahey

Goal
Sabourin
Holtby

*The goaltenders are expected to split the game.

It will be interesting to see how these guys do facing most of an playoff team from last year.

Is anyone else have trouble with the game stream being unstable?

@fanohock1 I had a little trouble with it in the middle of the period but that was it. The sound has been in and out but I don't care much.

the little tykes skating during the 1st intermission was cute... heh... missed the goal, what happened? Anyone? Bueller?

Thanks hammer. I guess it's my ISP because it buffers and pauses every 10 seconds or so.

I like Carlson's aggressiveness on the PK!

Schultz with a late point drive for a goal... sweet!

Except Backstrom is getting credit for the goal that everyone thought was Schultz. That's what it says on the Caps website.

Looks like Thornton was sporting a nice shiner from last night

Hendricks is now officially a member of the MacDonald clan. He fought Campbell!

(The Caps fight for the honor of Clan MacDonald.)

AGordon for the gift goal... woohoo!

The Caps call-ups and juniors taking it to Tim Thomas and Chara, hahahahahaahaha

I was a little worried after the second period penalty trouble. This is a great way to turn it around.

Final in Boston, Caps-4, Bruins-1

Posted by: JMinVA | September 29, 2010 9:22 PM | Report abuse

Great game tonight. I was right behind the caps bench. The team seemed to be much quicker than the bruins. A lot of quick cycling with the puck. Perreault and Gordan were especially active. btw - games stats are way off. the shots where extremely undercounted on the caps side. Even with the almost solid eight penalty minutes in the 2nd period, the Caps "unoffically" well out shot the bruins.
