The Caps’ lineup is something of a guess at this time, based on a projection from NHL.com’s preview. Evgeny Kuznetsov’s injury on Friday throws the Caps’ lineup for a bit of a loop, and we’ll see how they choose to go about replacing him. They also have not confirmed their starting goalie as of this writing.
For the Flyers, Robert Hagg is back in the lineup, a bit ahead of schedule. He’ll be replacing ... Brandon Manning! Did not see that one coming.
