Bruins lines vs. Ottawa: Frank & Bjork

Some new faces due to injuries and suspension.

The Bruins were playing a bit shorthanded with Charlie McAvoy out and Brad Marchand suspended. They’ll be even more shorthanded, with Noel Acciari out, per Bruce Cassidy.

This means both Anders Bjork and Frank Vatrano will draw in, giving us a slightly new look in the forward corps.

Anders Bjork - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Ryan Spooner

Danton Heinen- Riley Nash - David Backes

Tim Schaller- Sean Kuraly - Frank Vatrano

Expect Cassidy to do some line-juggling if things get stagnant: he could try Vatrano in Bjork’s spot, Heinen in Bjork’s spot, Vatrano in Heinen’s get the idea.

On defense, there shouldn’t be any changes.

Zdeno Chara - Brandon Carlo

Torey Krug - Adam McQuaid

Matt Grzelcyk - Kevan Miller

Expect Tuukka Rask to be between the pipes.

See ya tonight!
