Our lord and savior Zac Rinaldo returns from the injured reserved list

Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins held an optional skate this morning, which consisted of Zach Trotman, Joe Morrow, Maxime Talbot, and Jonas Gustavsson. None of the aforementioned figure to see playing time (Talbot will begin his league-mandated two game suspension tonight), therefore yesterday's lines at practice should give us an indication of Claude Julien's thinking heading into this pivotal pre-christmas matchup.

Per the Bruins' official Twitter account:

Forwards

Beleskey-Krejci-Eriksson

Marchand-Bergeron-Connolly

Vatrano-Spooner-Hayes

Rinaldo-Ferraro-Randell

Defense

Chara-McQuaid

Seidenberg-C.Miller

Krug-K.Miller

Morrow-Trotman

Expect to see Zac Rinaldo back in the lineup. He was out for a stretch due to injuring himself in a fight versus Matt Hendricks. Rinaldo later blamed the injury on the referee.

The Blues will counter with the following, per Daily Faceoff:

Forwards

Steen-Stasney-Tarasenko

Paajarvi-Backes-Brouwer

Fabbri-Lettera-Jaskin

Upshall-Gomez-Reaves

Defense

Bouwmeester-Pietrangelo
