So, this is how the pregame skate coverage began on Twitter:

Not promising. Khudobin was the only goalie on the ice, until...

The skate was optional, so let’s hope Rask is somewhere hydrating and
getting ready for the game tonight. Zane McIntyre will back up Anton Khudobin, as coach Bruce Cassidy reported that Tuukka is not available. A bit more clarity from Butch indicates that Kenny Agostino will get a chance, David Backes has been activated from illness, and Adam McQuaid is still the toughest mother, and is back in the lineup. Ryan Spooner, meanwhile, is sidelined for the foreseeable future. Patrice Bergeron is a game-time decision.
Kenny Agostino and Adam McQuaid will also be in the lineup, per Cassidy. #NHLBruins— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) October 19, 2017
Here’s the projected lineup - take it with a few tablespoons of salt, as no rushes were done today so we’re taking evidence from Wednesday’s practice (and I’m armchair-coaching this a little bit).
Brad Marchand - Riley Nash - Anders Bjork
Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - David Pastrnak
Kenny Agostino - David Backes - Frank Vatrano
Tim Schaller - Sean Kuraly - Matt Beleskey
Zdeno Chara - Brandon Carlo
Torey Krug - Adam McQuaid
Kevan Miller - Charlie McAvoy
