Lines: Blue Jackets at Bruins

Familiar combinations for the Bruins at morning skate; Noel Acciari is not on the ice.

This morning’s line rushes, per Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa:

I’m diggin’ the balance of strength - with David Pastrnak getting a little more ‘chippy’, and David Backes and Matt Beleskey on 2nd and 3rd lines respectively, there’s some engineered depth in the ‘bruising winger’ category. (If you want to call Pastrnak a bruising winger already, which... is a stretch. The suspension helped.)

Noel Acciari is still off-ice after leaving Tuesday’s game in the 3rd. Heal quick, kid!

And, defensive pairs:

Mike Loftus of the Patriot Ledger clued us into the powerplay setups:

Unit 1:
Ryan Spooner - Patrice Bergeron - David Backes
Torey Krug - David Krejci

Unit 2:
Brad Marchand - Matt Beleskey - David Pastrnak
John-Michael Liles - Austin Czarnik

No word on goalies, but expect to see a rested Tuukka Rask in net.

See you at gametime!
