The Washington Capitals enter Monday night’s Game 6 against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a 3-2 series lead with a chance to close out the series and advance to the second round for the fourth consecutive season. The Penguins will await the winner of the series after upending the Flyers in six games. This Game 6 will not be taken lightly. The Capitals know they have a hostile environment, a jacked up team, and a confident coach on the opposition. Here’s how the Capitals will line up tonight based on the line rushes from morning skate at Nationwide Arena.

T.J. Oshie once again wasn’t on the ice for the morning skate which has been the occasion for the last two morning skates the team had. Don’t read too much into it, he will still play tonight. The Caps will go with the same lines tonight as they did in Games 4 and 5. T.J. Oshie’s placeholder at morning skate on the second line was Travis Boyd, which has been that way since Game 3’s morning skate.

Puck drop for tonight’s game is at 7:30 p.m. You can catch the game locally on NBC Sports Washington or on CNBC if you live outside the D.C. area.
