Here are the line combinations for the first full on-ice day of training camp. Interesting to note that Nathan Horton has been paired with Tyler Seguin and that Patrice Bergeron is skating on the same line with fellow Quebecois Benoit Pouliot. The Bruins worked on two-on-two battle drills in the first half of the session and are now working on breakouts running the lines up and down the ice.

McKinnon-Seguin-Horton
Tardif-Bergeron-Pouliot
Paille-Campbell-Arniel
MacDermid-Whitfield-MacDonald
Khokhlachev-Ridderwall-Thornton

Ference-Cohen
Bartkowski-Boychuk
Seidenberg-McKelvie
McIver-Kampfer

Thomas
Khudobin

Group B lines included

Sauve-Krejci-Knight
Marchand-Hamill-Randell
Caron-Kelly-Clark
Lucic-Spooner-Cunningham
Camara-Peverley-ChaputCamper

Chara-HamiltonButton
Bodnarchuk-Corvo
Warsofsky-McQuaid
Cantin-Miller

Rask
Hutchinson

The message is obviously to work really hard and take nothing for granted. Every team starts from the very same starting line and whatever we did was a nice accomplishment, said Chara. But its a new season and we must approach it that way. Were going to get a lot of attention, but we need to stay modest, stay humble and work extremely hard.

Capitals lose 3-goal lead, recover to beat Bruins in OT

WASHINGTON - Nicklas Backstrom scored 1:36 into overtime, helping the Washington Capitals beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 after blowing a three-goal lead Wednesday night.

Justin Williams scored twice and Daniel Winnik also had a goal to put Washington ahead 3-0 about six minutes into the second period.

After Winnik's tally, Washington went over 26 minutes without a shot on goal. Boston dominated the final five minutes of the second period, when Dominic Moore and David Pastrnak beat goaltender Braden Holtby. Colin Miller's power-play score 8:19 into third tied it at 3.

Boston arrived in Washington 4-0-1 over its last five games with three wins in a row, including a 4-3 overtime triumph against Florida on Monday night.

Evgeny Kuznetsov had two assists for the Capitals and Alex Ovechkin got his first point since Nov. 26.

Boston outshot Washington 34-20. The Capitals have won two straight following a three-game losing skid.
