Tonight's lineup: Leafs at Caps

Eric Fehr returns to the Capitals lineup after being a healthy scratch for Washington's most recent outing, a 7-2 win in Calgary. Coach Bruce Boudreau said it was only intended as a one-game wake up call for the right winger.

Michal Neuvirth makes his 11th start of the season in goal and it appears he will oppose Toronto's Jonas Gustavsson. Matt Hendricks takes a turn as the healthy scratch of the night while Tyler Sloan (hip) and Tom Poti (lower-body) are also out.

Good line-up. Would be better with Poti though.

GO CAPS!

Interesting Laich is back to LW and Flash back to C.

I will DVR and watch starting about 6 local time so no more reading here for now.

I got the feeling Laich was uncomfertable at C...but I would have liked to give him another go...3 days of practicing faceoffs could have helped.

Not that I don't think Neuvy is great-he is--but I miss Varley and feel bad for him missing out through no fault of his own. What do you think of Hendricks. The kid takes so many penalties. I guess he is still struggling to find his role & comfot level in the team. I don't think I can take another slow start with the Caps acting like an offensively challenged team of sluggish rookies.

Same old story this year Caps fans ...Can OV learn to shorten his shifts ...NOT cause its all me me me for OV But I guess you can play 65 sec shifts when you dont back check.... Dont worry OV you will have lots of time to rest in the POST season
