Projected Lines: Lightning at Bruins

New, comments

David Krejci will nurse his upper-body injury tonight.

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Boston Bruins Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Boston Bruins

Forwards

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - Charlie Coyle - Brett Ritchie

Danton Heinen - Par Lindholm - Karson Kuhlman

Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

With Krejci out, Coyle slides up and Lindholm slots into that third line, though Kuhlman stays on the third line after that “demotion” on Monday.

Defense

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Connor Clifton

Don’t enjoy saying it, but Clifton is still just kinda lucky that Kevan Miller and John Moore are injured and that Bruce is willing to keep him in the lineup while he can for reps/experience. Not that either Moore or Miller would be playing better necessarily, but they will be back in the lineup as soon as either of them is ready. Cassidy has been liberal with his minutes in October, and I don’t see that continuing. He’s exciting, but a bit too erratic - hopefully the reps in the NHL help him to settle down a little. (Just not TOO much, because Cliffy Hockey should still be a thing.)
