The Capitals held their gameday morning skate Monday morning at Amalie Arena in Tampa. The two big questions heading into the game against the Lightning tonight? Will Nathan Walker Start his second consecutive game or will Tyler Graovac return to the starting lineup, and will Christian Djoos finally get a start in the NHL.
Lines at morning skate indicate that Nathan Walker will once again get the start over Tyler Graovac on the 4th line. Philipp Grubauer will get the start in goal.

Defensive pairs will remain the same as Saturday night against Montreal:
It looks like Christian Djoos will once again be a healthy scratch, indicating his first start may come against Pittsburgh at home on Wednesday night or in New Jersey on Friday night.
