Sharks vs. Capitals Lines: Ovechkin game-time decision

The Sharks lines are unchanged from their first two games.

Alexander Ovechkin is a game-time decision because of a personal matter and the San Jose Sharks lineup is unchanged. Barry Trotz didn't, and won't, say how he'll fill Ovechkin's first line spot if the Russian doesn't play. We've left him in the lineup as a result.
