This morning’s line rushes, per Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa:
AM lines. No Acciari:— Fluto Shinzawa (@GlobeFluto) November 10, 2016
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:
Ryan Spooner - Patrice Bergeron - David Backes
Torey Krug - David Krejci
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!
