Well that's a nice boost.

The Bruins said last week that Tuesday looked good for David Krejci, barring any setbacks.

It looks like his weekend was free of those setbacks, as the team confirmed that Krejci will return to the lineup tonight.

Par Lindholm will be out after getting hit up high on Sunday night in New York. Joakim Nordstrom is still out with his infection.

Tonight, we'll see:

Forward lines:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Danton Heinen

Anders Bjork - Charlie Coyle - Brett Ritchie

Chris Wagner - Sean Kuraly - David Backes

Defense Pairings:

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Connor Clifton

Tuukka Rask will be in net.

That second line is based on what the Bruins used in practice this morning, and is pretty interesting.

Your thoughts?
