Tonight's lineup: Caps at Predators

Michal Neuvirth gets his fifth straight start for the Capitals in Nashville and will oppose rookie Anders Lindback. The 6-foot-6 Swede has allowed five goals on 67 shots in his first three NHL games, and tonight's contest marks his third start.

Last season, the Predators were 6-0-1 against the Southeast Division and their only defeat was a 3-2 shootout loss to the Capitals as Alex Ovechkin scored both goals in regulation and the shootout winner.

Based on warmups, here's what the lineup should look like:

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

Defense
Schultz-Alzner
Erskine-Carlson
Sloan-Fahey

Goal
Neuvirth
Varlamov

FIRST to note that we have 3 natural centers on the 4th line and no good face-off men on the 3rd line. How about switching Hendricks and Chimera to give Johannson some face off help?
