Tonight's 8-Bit Lines: A Lot More Latta

Per Mike Vogel, Barry Trotz is shaking things up up the middle, with Michael Latta getting a promotion of sorts to center Marcus Johansson and Troy Brouwer. That moves Evgeny Kuznetsov back to the fourth line, and keeps Andre Burakovsky in the pressbox... although that might be short-lived. With that in mind, here's a look at what the lines and defensive pairings should look like in front of Braden Holtby: Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Tom Wilson Brooks Laich - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward Marcus Johansson - Michael Latta - Troy Brouwer Jason Chimera - Evgeny Kuznetsov -...

Capitals hope to jolt Brouwer, Johansson by moving Latta between them

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Aiming to jolt a struggling line that has generated just three even-strength shot attempts over the past two games, Coach Barry Trotz promoted forward Michael Latta and slotted him between Troy Brouwer and Marcus Johansson at the Washington Capitals’ morning skate Thursday. Though Trotz later hedged against cementing this group to face […]

Caps Insider: Against Columbus, Troy Brouwer scored second goal in as many games

One hard shove gave forward Troy Brouwer all the hint he needed, so the Capitals forward dodged around the net and tried to evade his defenseman that way. Brouwer had tried to stake himself inside the Columbus crease, but Kevin Connauton muscled him away. Creating a net-front presence, Brouwer learned, didn’t just come from sheer strength. It could come from evasive tactics, like a swift swim move.Read full article >>

Caps Insider: In Tampa, Troy Brouwer ended 5-on-5 drought with key goal

TAMPA — As the veteran on a line with youngsters, Washington Capitals forward Troy Brouwer understood his role, and lately he felt he had set a poor example. He wanted opponents to fear him, left winger Marcus Johansson and whichever rookie center skated between them. Maybe now, after Brouwer freed his stick just long enough to elevate the puck into the top shelf for a key goal in a 5-3 win over powerful Tampa Bay, someone finally would. Read full article >>

Alex Ovechkin, Troy Brouwer lead Capitals past Lightning for third straight win

TAMPA — As the veteran on a line stuffed with youngsters, Washington Capitals forward Troy Brouwer understood his role, and lately he felt he had set a poor example.

The ‘older guy’ on his line, Troy Brouwer seeks more personal consistency

TAMPA – Since the regular season began, Troy Brouwer and Marcus Johansson have been stationed together, at right and left wing, respectively, for all but three games. They have cycled through a host of centers, most notably two rookies still learning the position: Andre Burakovsky (17 games) and Evgeny Kuznetsov (six games). Burakovsky is 19 […]
