Sens lineup vs. Caps finalized



The Ottawa Senators will have a chance to clinch tonight and they'll take the task on using a lineup they haven't been able to put together all season long thanks to the returns of Erik Karlsson and Jared Cowen.

There will only be one change from Monday's game against the Penguins as Patrick Wiercioch checks out and Karlsson takes his place. The reserves, outside of that one switch, remain the same from last game.

The Sens have undergone some massive line shuffling by the looks of things however, as they try to spark some offence from a lineup that has two goals total in its last two games.

Here's how the Sens will look to start.

Conacher - Turris - Michalek

Greening - Smith - Alfredsson

Condra - Zibanejad - Silfverberg

Latendresse - Pageau - Neil

Methot - Karlsson

Cowen - Gonchar

Phillips - Gryba

Anderson

Lehner

The Caps have clinched their division crown and are locked into the third spot in the Eastern Conference. As such, it's not a huge surprise that they will be starting Michal Neuvirth in goal tonight over Braden Holtby, despite Holtby playing very well during last Thursday's game between these two. Other than that, Washington is more or less the same team as a week ago.

Here's how they will line up to start...

Johansson - Backstrom - Ovechkin

Erat - Ribeiro - Brouwer

Chimera - Perreault - Fehr

Volpatti - Hendricks - Beagle

Alzner - Green

Erskine - Carlson

Hillen - Oleksy

Neuvirth

Holtby

The Sens are 3-2-1 all-time against the Capitals under Paul MacLean.
