David Backes’ suspension is over, so you knew there were going to be a few changes in tonight’s lineup.
The major change: Backes is going to be on the second line, with Colby Cave taking a seat on the 9th Floor.
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak
Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - David Backes
Danton Heinen - Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson - Ryan Donato
Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari - Chris Wagner
On defense, Charlie McAvoy still isn’t ready, so there aren’t any changes.
Zdeno Chara - Brandon Carlo
Torey Krug - John Moore
Matt Grzelcyk - Kevan Miller
Tuukka Rask will start in net.
For Buffalo, I don’t have their complete lineup, but the big note is that Jack Eichel won’t play. He’s had great showings in his last few games at the Garden, so this is a boost for the Bruins.
See ya at 7!
