Tonight's Lineup: Sharks at Caps

The Caps seek to avoid losing five games in a row for the first time under Coach Bruce Boudreau tonight when they host the Sharks, a team they haven't defeated since 1999, a span of 11 games.

Jose Theodore is expected to be the starter and will likely oppose Evgeni Nabokov, who is 8-0-0 lifetime with a sub-2.00 goals against average against the Caps.

Based on practice this week, the rest of the Caps' revamped lineup is expected to look like this:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Morrison-Knuble
Laich-Backstrom-Semin
Fehr-Aucoin-Clark
Laing-Steckel-Bradley
Scratches: Gordon, Nylander

Defense
Morrison-Green
Poti-Jurcina
Schultz-Pothier
Scratch: Sloan

Goal
Theodore
Varlamov

One more note: The Sharks are expected to be without defenseman Doug Murray, who has flu-like symptoms, according to the San Jose Mecury News.

I'll have more after the game.

It's the revised Lunch Bucket Set

Clark smells. How the man scored 30 and 20 in consecutive years is beyond me (even playing with Ovie).

I would like to see Sloan in the line up. BB said he was the best D in camp and yet he never plays. I am thinking that ShoMo and Juice and maybe Pothier are being played to set up a trade.

We all smell, chombie13. We all smell with our noses. And some animals smell with their tongues. You wanna' guess how dumb your comment was? Yeah, pretty much.
