Bruins lines vs. Rangers: The Boston University Invitational

Why not just let them wear BU jerseys?

NHL: St. Louis Blues at Boston Bruins Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

It’s officially Bruins vs. Rangers, but it’s really “a bunch of guys from Boston University catching up at the Garden.”

Matt Grzelcyk, Charlie McAvoy, Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, Kevin Shattenkirk, David Quinn...the list goes on. Not sure it will be the most comfortable night for Kevin Hayes, a former Boston College Eagle. Rivalries, etc.

Anyways, the Bruins look to be keeping things pretty similar to Thursday night for their last game before the break, with two minor tweaks: per the team on Twitter, Matt Grzelcyk is in for John Moore, and Noel Acciari is in for Ryan Donato.

Donato's scratch means bumping David Backes up to the third line.

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Peter Cehlarik

Danton Heinen - Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson - David Backes

Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari - Chris Wagner

On defense:

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Kevan Miller

Tuukka Rask will be in net.

For the visitors, here’s what they’ll probably put out there.

Chris Kreider - Mika Zibanejad - Mats Zuccarello

Filip Chytil - Ryan Strome - Jesper Fast

Jimmy Vesey - Cristoval Nieves - Vladimir Namestnikov

Cody McLeod - Brett Howden - Pavel Buchnevich

Marc Staal - Anthony DeAngelo

Brady Skjei - Adam McQuaid

Ryan Lindgren - Kevin Shattenkirk

Henrik Lundqvist
