Tonight's Lineup: Rangers at Caps

Rookie Simeon Varlamov will start in net for the Caps as they attempt to stave off elimination tonight in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarters. Just in case you're wondering, Henrik Lundqvist will start for the Rangers.

The big news tonight is that Rangers' pest Sean Avery won't suit up for the Rangers. He has not been suspended by the league, but rather is being benched by Coach John Tortorella for his selfish penalties late in Game 4. Aaron Voros will take Avery's spot.

Based on the warmup, the rest of the Caps' lineup should look like this: (I say "should" because the lineup was just handed out and Steckel is centering Laich and Bradley)

Forwards
Ovechkin-Fedorov-Kozlov
Fleischmann-Backstrom-Semin
Laich-Steckel-Fehr
Brashear-Gordon-Bradley
Clark and Nylander are out

Defense
Morrisonn-Green
Jurcina-Poti
Erskine-Pothier
Schultz is out

Check back later for some additional notes and quotes.
