Now please take wideman off PP1 and replace him with Mike Green. His chemistry with the rest of the players should be reason enough to give him a shot a running it.

He's on Ovechkin and Johansson's line, so yeah, he'd better get 1st line minutes.

To all those asking: John Erskine, who has been bothered by a lower-body inj recently, did not skate this am. Won't be in the lineup vs MTL

Even Crosby got eased into the lineup. I'd imagine he'd have limited minutes even with where he's slated. I'd be shocked otherwise.

So what do you think Hunter meant when he said Backstrom has to "play special minutes" then?

That could be interpreted many ways. He's pretty vague in most of his pressers.

1st line and PP.

Wouldnt be surprised if OV gets some double shifts on the 4th line if backstrom isnt in game shape yet. But i expect #19 to get 17+min.

cant wait to see the PP with a real playmaking center dishing out the puck

"The Caps are 9-0 in the nine previous games in which all four of those players have been in the lineup. "
