Backes is out. Does that shake things up?

With David Backes suspended, you know the lines are going to look a little different tonight. Per the morning skate info from the Bruins, here’s what we’ll see:

Brad Marchand - Riley Nash - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Rick Nash

Danton Heinen - Tommy Wingels - Brian Gionta

Tim Schaller - Noel Acciari - Sean Kuraly

No real shocks there. Rather than call someone up from Providence, the B’s have decided to just put Acciari back in the line-up.

On defense, here’s what to expect:

Zdeno Chara - Brandon Carlo

Torey Krug - Adam McQuaid

Matt Grzelcyk - Kevan Miller

In practice, Nick Holden was up on the first pair rotating in and out, which makes him the likely scratch tonight.

Per Mike Loftus of the Patriot Ledger, Tuukka Rask will get the start.

See ya tonight!
