Capitals

With his team struggling to produce consistently on offense, Capitals Coach Barry Trotz appears to be considering some radical changes to his forward lines in the wake of Saturday’s listless 5-1 loss at Carolina.

Here’s how the players lined up early during Monday's practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

1. Ovechkin-Beagle-Connolly/Burakovsky

2. Johansson-Backstrom-Oshie

3. Sanford-Kuznetsov-Williams

4. Winnik-Eller-Wilson

The defensive pairs, meantime, appeared unchanged.

Fourteen games into the season, the Capitals find themselves tied with the Coyotes and Hurricanes for 16th in the NHL in goals per game (2.64).

Johansson and Ovechkin are tied for the team lead in goals with seven. Oshie is third with six. All alone in fourth is grinder Jay Beagle with three. 

Trotz is slated to speak to reporters after practice.
