The Capitals are going to split up Alexander Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.
Despite the fact that the two star forwards have been playing on the same line for the Caps' last 25 games. and Washington has posted a 17-5-3 during that period, coach Barry Trotz seems to have shuffled his lines and Backstrom will center the second unit. In line rushes on Friday the Caps iced these units: Ovechkin-Evgeny Kuznetsov-Tom Wilson; Andre Burakovsky-Backstrom-T.J. Oshie. Needless to say Burakovsky is the big winner here, while Petr Vrana, who now is an extra forward, is the big loser. Jan 20 - 12:14 PM
