Alex Ovechkin hasn't been spotted in a Capitals uniform since his Caps were ousted in last season's playoff run, but the All-Star sniper will be making noise Tuesday night as he is set to make his preseason debut against the Bruins.
General manager Peter Chiarelli's 20-man roster won't feature first-round pick Tyler Seguin, but bruisers Milan Lucic and Shawn Thornton, along with Blake Wheeler, Michael Ryder and Joe Colborne, will be lacing them up at the Verizon Center in a battle of two of the Eastern Conference's top teams.
In transaction news, Jeff LoVecchio was recalled from the Providence Bruins while Nathan McIver was sent down to the AHL affiliate.
Below is the complete roster of Bruins who are suiting up Tuesday night for the club's fourth preseason tilt.
Gregory Campbell, Joe Colborne, Zach Hamill, Jeff LoVecchio, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, Daniel Paille, Jeremy Reich, Michael Ryder, Wyatt Smith, Shawn Thornton, Blake Wheeler
