Bruins at Senators: Projected Lines

Check out the anticipated line combinations for tonight’s game!

Senators lines look to be as follows:


Alexandre Burrows - Kyle Turris - Mike Hoffman

Zack Smith - Derick Brassard - Mark Stone

Ryan Dzingel - Jean-Gabriel Pageau - Tom Pyatt

Viktor Stålberg - Chris Kelly - Tommy Wingels


Marc Methot - Erik Karlsson

Dion Phaneuf - Cody Ceci

Mark Borowiecki - Chris Wideman

Deadline acquisition Jyrki Jokipakka was a scratch vs. Columbus, and it’ll likely be tough for him to crack this lineup against the Bruins. Each of these other defensemen have played north of 55 games each, meaning they’re a pretty well-established group. This may change after their morning skate.

Bruins Lineup


Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Backes

Peter Cehlarik - David Krejci - David Pastrnak

Frank Vatrano - Ryan Spooner - Drew Stafford

Tim Schaller - Dominic Moore - Riley Nash

I see no reason why Jimmy Hayes or Matt Beleskey should draw back into this lineup, barring injury or some other unfortunate event. Their last game, against the Devils, showed the best depth of the season - admittedly in a one-game sample. There’s no time to get a longer look before making a decision, with just 17 games remaining in the regular season.


Zdeno Chara - Brandon Carlo

Torey Krug - Adam McQuaid

Colin Miller - Kevan Miller

McQuaid needed twenty-five stitches to close a wound on his neck when teammate David Backes’ skate came up and caught him. He is incredibly lucky, as it looked to be just a surface wound with no deep damage to important arteries.
