Arizona’s lines for tonight’s game should look like this.
(Updated 11:45am, with input from FFH’s Sarah Hall and corrections to B’s defense pairs)

Forwards

Max Domi - Peter Holland - Radim Vrbata

Brendan Perlini - Christian Dvorak - Shane Doan

Jamie McGinn - Jordan Martinook - Tobias Rieder

Lawson Crouse - Alexander Burmistrov - Josh Jooris

I’m speculating on where Pulkkinen slots in, but chances are he’s going to get limited minutes in his first outing, grabbing the recently traded Ryan White’s wing spot on the 4th line. Check back for an update later today on who slots into Hanzal’s top-center spot.

Speculation nullified. Per this morning’s line rushes, the 4th line will see Burmistrov’s return from injury and Jooris’ return from scratch-land. Martinook moves up the chart.

Defense

Oliver Ekman-Larsson - Connor Murphy

Alex Goligoski - Anthony DeAngelo

Jakog Chychrun - Luke Schenn

Goalies

Mike Smith (starting, per NHL.com)

Louis Domingue

Bruins Lineup

Forwards

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Backes

Peter Cehlarik - David Krejci - David Pastrnak

Frank Vatrano - Ryan Spooner - Jimmy Hayes

Tim Schaller - Dominic Moore - Riley Nash

Matt Beleskey was not on the ice. uhh....?

Defense

Zdeno Chara - Brandon Carlo

Torey Krug - Adam McQuaid

Colin Miller - Kevan Miller

John-Michael Liles draws back out of the lineup, in favor of Chiller. His trade tryout against Dallas has yet to yield results.

Goalies

Tuukka Rask (starting, per Coach Cassidy)

Anton Khudobin
