The Capitals are eager for a rematch against Tampa Bay, the team that swept them out of the second round of the playoffs in May. It’s only the second contest of the season, of course, but as goalie Tomas Vokoun put it, tonight can still be a “statement game” for Washington.

Faceoff: 7 p.m. | TV: CSN, VS, TSN2 | Radio: 1500 AM

Based on warmup here’s what the Capitals’ lineup should look like tonight:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble
Brouwer-Johansson-Semin
Chimera-Laich-Ward
Hendricks-Perreault-Halpern

Defenseman
Alzner-Carlson
Hamrlik-Green
Schultz-Wideman

Goal
Vokoun
Neuvirth
