Ovechkin, Backstrom skating together on Capitals’ top line again

Coach Bruce Boudreau downplayed the fact that Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom were reunited on the top line in Sunday’s practice, but this morning at KCI they’re together once more.

So it’s likely that Ovechkin, Backstrom and Troy Brouwer will make up the Capitals’ top line in their preseason home opener tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Verizon Center.

Check out the rest of the lineup after the jump.
