Morning line rushes, per Bruins’ twitter:

Matt Beleskey was on the ice but did not participate in line rushes, so Sean Kuraly should be making his NHL debut tonight. (Let’s hope Beleskey’s arm is otherwise OK and this is “maintenance”.)

No surprises on D. Glad Liles’ facehole is mostly intact.

Goalie is TBD, as they haven’t left the ice yet in Tampa. It’s anybody’s guess but if Tuukka is feelin’ alright, he should be in net.

And, per our friends at RawCharge, the Tampa lines should be:

Forward Lines

Ondrej Palat - Steven Stamkos - Nikita Kucherov

Alex Killorn - Tyler Johnson - Brayden Point

JT Brown - Valtteri Filppula - Ryan Callahan

Cedric Paquette - Brian Boyle - Vladislav Namestnikov

Defensive Pairings

Victor Hedman - Anton Stralman

Jason Garrison - Andrej Sustr

Slater Koekkoek - Braydon Coburn

Scratch: Jonathan Drouin (upper body)

Goaltenders

Ben Bishop

Andrei Vasilevskiy
