It seems like the season will start with Marcus Johansson centering Alex Ovechkin and Mike Knuble, and, who knows, maybe this will be the permanent line. Mike Knuble, in spite of his age of 39, led Group A in the last suicide sprint (Great Eight has won the first two). This line will be flying!
TarikElBashir: 39 year old Knuble just led that segment of the test, edging Laich, Ovi and Semin. Boudreau approved.I'd say, Marcus Johansson is the most creative center Caps have.
Katie Carrera, Capitals Insider:
“Marcus played so well at the end of the year and I thought he had good chemistry with Alex at the end of the year, so we just wanted to see how much he grew over the summer,” Boudreau continued. “Not physically or anything, but mentally having that year under his belt. I thought they made a couple pretty good plays out there today, this morning. It will be interesting to see how they play together.”Two most exciting Caps forwards on one line, is it October yet?
