Quick update from Kettler Capitals Iceplex, where there appears to be changes for Friday morning’s practice. After seven games, Adam Oates has finally shifted up his lines. According to your boy Mike Vogel:
Looks like: 90-19-8, 10-21-20, 25-84-42, 24-83-43/16. #Caps

Or, in full text:
Johansson – Backstrom – Ovechkin
Erat – Laich – Brouwer
Chimera – Grabovski – Ward
Volpatti – Beagle – Wilson/Fehr
The top line is unchanged (despite Alex Ovechkin generating 70+% of its offense on his own). Martin Erat has been promoted to the second line, with Brooks Laich taking the center position. Grabovski, meanwhile, has dropped to the third line with the normal wingers there. I’m not 100% sure I understand Vogs’ syntax for the 4th line, but there’s Fehr and Wilson fighting for a spot on the right wing.
