Tonight's 8-Bit Capital Lines: New-Look Bottom-Six

Per Mike Vogel, the streak-snapping loss in Winnipeg coupled with a lack of secondary scoring has led Barry Trotz to shake up his bottom six forwards, with Brooks Laich and Tom Wilson moving up to the third line to flank Eric Fehr. They'll also get Tim Gleason back after two games missed due to injury.

Laich ends drought, Ovechkin returns to power Capitals’ rout

Two months of anguish had piled onto Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich’s shoulders, the burden of a 26-game goal drought. He had been demoted to the fourth line and scratched for the first time since his second season. He had begun working out before practice, earlier each day, and studying extra film, as though the streak could be drilled into submission. He told himself to relax.
