The Capitals are back on the ice for practice Monday morning following an off day on Sunday. Their forward lines remain the same as they were last week.

The only players not taking part in the workout are Brooks Laich (groin) and defenseman Jack Hillen, who left the season opener at Tampa Bay after he was checked into the boards shoulder-first by Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier. After the game, Coach Adam Oates said Hillen suffered an upper-body injury.

Here are the lines and pairings:

Johansson-Backstrom-Ovechkin

Wolski-Ribeiro-Brouwer

Chimera-Beagle-Ward

Hendricks-Perreault-Fehr-Crabb

Alzner-Carlson

Hamrlik-Green

Poti-Schultz-Erskine

Goal: Holtby, Neuvirth
