The Capitals are on the ice for Wednesday’s morning skate and there’s a significant change to the line combinations the team is using ahead of Game 3. Things can always change before puck drop, but for this particular session Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom have been reunited on the top line.
The two franchise pillars haven’t started a game on the same line yet this postseason but if there’s ever a time to put Ovechkin and Backstrom back together it’s at home, where the Capitals have the last change and can dictate matchups.
Here is what the lineup looked like this morning:
Perreault, Halpern and Sjogren skating as extras
