Tonight's lineup: Caps at Bruins

By Katie Carrera

The Capitals face the Bruins looking to finally snap their seven-game losing streak. Entering Saturday night's NHL schedule, Washington holds a one-point edge over Atlanta and a two-point lead over Tampa Bay for the top spot in the Southeast Division and both teams play tonight. The Thrashers and Lightning host New Jersey and Buffalo, respectively. So keep an eye on that out-of-town scoreboard.

Update: Mathieu Perreault is a late scratch for tonight's game because he's sick. So that should mean that Eric Fehr is back in. Here are the revised lines.

Forwards
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble
Laich-Perreault-A.Gordon Laich-Johansson-A.Gordon
Hendricks-Steckel-Bradley
Chimera-Johansson-Beagle Chimera-Beagle-Fehr

Defense
Hannan-Green
Erskine-Poti
Alzner-Carlson

Goal
Neuvirth
Varlamov

Scratches: Alexander Semin, and Mathieu Perreault. Eric Fehr

Looking at that lineup I don't see why the Caps should be a top team in the league. Besides Ovechkin and Backstrom the forward lines are simply mediocre. A lot of brawn, not a lot of skill. The loss of Fleischmann really hurt this team and if they were to lose Semin to free agency they'd be on the playoff bubble for the next few seasons. Too bad GMGM listened to those so-called experts and made room for useless aging players like King and Hannan. A team needs one checking line, not three of them.

Steckel is terrible! Gosh he frustrates me more than any other player on this roster. Get the f'in puck deep!

Caps looked pretty good, just had no chances. Boston's D is too good and when they do get through to Thomas, it's a bad chance. What happened to this team? I guess they aren't as good as we all thought they were.

I've never been a big Steckel fan. I don't see the ROI. In my opinion, he's our worst center. Boyd Gordon is so much better.
