Bruins lines vs. Toronto: 4th line Bjork?

New, comments

Not exactly where most people hoped to see him.

Anders Bjork is in the building, and he'll be tearing things up...on the 4th line?

Apparently so! Per the team, both Joakim Nordstrom and Karson Kuhlman are out tonight. Bruce Cassidy said he thought Bjork could bring some of what Nordstrom brings, so he stuck him on a line with Chris Wagner and Sean Kuraly.

Alright then!

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - Charlie Coyle - Brett Ritchie

Danton Heinen - Par Lindholm - David Backes

Anders Bjork - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

On defense and in net, things are a little more stable.

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Connor Clifton

You already know Tuukka Rask will be in net.

It's an interesting approach by Cassidy, to say the least. Bjork sure seems like he'd be a better fit on the second or third line right wing, but I remember reading that he'd been playing on the left in Providence, and had been playing a lot better.

Chances are there will be some shuffling going on during the game, so I wouldn't get too fired up about it.
