07:26 AM ET 10.08 | This week opened Monday in Washington without any anticipated swapping of the laundry. Marcus Johansson, Alex Ovechkin, and Nicklas Backstrom donned first-line red jerseys, Brooks Laich, Mikhail Grabovski, and Troy Brouwer wore second-line grey, Jason Chimera, Eric Fehr and Joel Ward wore third-line green, and Martin Erat, Jay Beagle, and Tom Wilson skated in fourth-line white. In other words, despite being outscored 10-3 in even strength situations through three games, Adam Oates isn't ready to tinker with his lines just yet. "Nothing's glaring, I mean we've lost one-goal games," Oates said. "I think we've made mistakes at times in certain areas. I thought the other night [in Dallas], there were moments where we turned it over too many times, trying to get cute instead of making the obvious play."

Caps' considering lineup changes?

Oates will now be going with a catcher in lieu of a goalie, and two linebackers on the d-line
