Based on morning skate, it looks like Brad Marchand is out, Joe Morrow is out, and Tommy Cross is probably in as well:
Sounded like Tommy Cross will make his debut tonight, per Claude.— Amalie Benjamin (@AmalieBenjamin) October 14, 2015
As far as who sits for Cross, maybe Claude really hates Trotman. Maybe McQuaid's finger issue is worse than we thought.
Update: Trotman and Talbot were out getting in extra practice after the rest of the team skated. Which means it looks like Randell is in for Talbot and Cross is in for Trotman.
Loui Eriksson - Patrice Bergeron - Brett Connolly
Matt Beleskey - David Krejci - David Pastrnak
Chris Kelly - Ryan Spooner - Jimmy Hayes
Zac Rinaldo - Joonas Kemppainen - Tyler Randell
Zdeno Chara - Kevan Miller
Torey Krug - Adam McQuaid
Corey Miller - Tommy Cross
So there are your lines as the Bruins prepare to take on Carl and Company in Denver. Any predictions? First goal? Amount the Bruins will lose by? One thing's for sure, it would be really nice to avoid this stat happening:
Bruins have twice started a season 0-4 in their history, in 1942-43 & '64-65. Try to avoid that in Colorado tonight.— Dave Goucher (@DavidCGoucher) October 14, 2015
