Here’s the skinny from Bruins practice:

Tuukka Rask was the first netminder off the ice at pregame skate. #NHLBruins— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 30, 2017
Cassidy said Frank Vatrano is day-to-day and will miss tonight's game. Matt Beleskey will play alongside Spooner & Hayes.— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 30, 2017
So as expected, Tuukka Rask’s in net. Colin Miller appears to again be out in favor of John-Michael Liles, and this humble blogger is just going to throw out there that they’re probably DMen who deserve a benching more if Cassidy really wants Liles (who I think still does bring something to the table) back in. Also, Frank Vatrano is Day-to-Day and Matt Beleskey will skate with Ryan Spooner and Jimmy Hayes.
Speaking of which:
I'll continue to tweet this stat on a Bruins gameday just because: B's are 6-13-1 when Jimmy Hayes is not in the lineup. That is not a typo.— Tim Rosenthal (@_TimRosenthal) March 30, 2017
...so this should go well!
The Stars info has yet to come out, though we won’t see Patrick Sharp, Jiri Hudler, or Antoine Roussel tonight based on previously-known injuries.
