Aaron Volpatti has been paired up with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.
Volpatti has a goal and two points in 20 games this season. This news might seem like a big opportunity, but it wouldn't be surprising if Volpatti's promotion only last a game or two before the Capitals mix up their lines again. "For me I don't think it can really change too much," Volpatti said. "Obviously I've got to be good defensively with those two guys, if I'm the high guy I've got to make sure I stay the high guy. I'm just going to try and be physical and create some room for them. Don't change too much here."
