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 spot...you 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!
