After a two week hiatus, we’re back with our line ups. Our NHL line up is a showdown line up between the Islanders and the Capitals. It is a must win for Washington so this could be a high scoring game as the Caps look to push the pace.
Here is my line up.
For the Capitals, I went with Alex Ovechkin, Evgeni Kuznetsov and John Carlson. All three will need to play big minutes and be engaged offensively for Washington to have any shot of getting back in this series. Ovechkin is coming off a two goal game and is starting to heat up.
The Islanders have players tight checking, defensive game. Anders Lee and Brock Nelson have both been a integral part of this series thus far offensively. Washington has had a tough time matching up against them.
Because I went with high end offensive players in my line up, I decided to go affordable with the captain by playing Derek Brassard. Brassard is not the offensive player he once was but he could find himself involved offensively as a third liner.
