The Capitals Insider, Tarik El-Bashir, has just released the lines for today and Brent Johnson will start tonight. Head coach Bruce Boudreau said: "This was scripted. If you look at how many games (Theo) plays a year, that's 50 or 55. So this was a good chance for Brent (Johnson) to make his debut."
On unrelated goalie news, it appears Sergei Fedorov will play defense today. The Detroit Redwings used Fedorov on D along time ago.
