Tonight's lineup: Lightning at Caps

Semyon Varlamov will make his second start in as many games and third of the season tonight against Tampa Bay, which will go with Mike Smith, who is 0-5-0 with a 4.72 goals-against average and .850 save percentage in six starts against the Capitals in his career.

With the return of Mike Knuble, Tomas Fleischmann is out against the Lightning. Alex Ovechkin will at least start another game on right-wing, once again with Nicklas Backstrom and Brooks Laich on the first line. Meanwhile, Alexander Semin will play on the left side of the second line with Marcus Johansson and Knuble.

Based on warm up here's what the lineup should look like:

Laich-Backstrom-Ovechkin
Semin-Johansson-Knuble
Chimera-Gordon-Fehr
Hendricks-Steckel-Bradley

Defense
Schultz-Poti
Alzner-Carlson
Erskine-Fahey
