Warmups are over, and we’re about 15 minutes from opening face-off. Here’s what we were given for tonight’s tilt between the Capitals and the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place:
8-Ovechkin, 25-Kozlov, 43-Fleischmann
19-Backstrom, 92-Nylander, 38-Klepis
18-Pettinger, 15-Gordon, 17-Clark
21-Laich, 16-Sutherby, 10-Bradley
We’re told that Kolzig will start and is expected to go all the way.
15-Heatley, 19-Spezza, 44-Eaves
20-Vermette, 41-Nikulin, 11-Alfredsson
71-Foligno, 22-Kelly, 10-Donovan
36-Hennessy, 58-Bass, 16-McGrattan
Gerber is expected to start. He started and went all the way in a 52-save shutout against Philly two nights ago, and it sounds like Elliott might get a look in relief tonight.
