Projected Lines: Florida Panthers visit Boston Bruins

New, comments

Slowly, but surely, the Panthers are fighting their way into playoff contention. Boston started grasping for the playoff-style hockey with which they started the season, and is still trying to find it again.

Boston Bruins

Forwards

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Danton Heinen - David Krejci - Charlie Coyle

Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

Anders Bjork - Par Lindholm - Zach Senyshyn

Making my own adjustment based on ice time. Anders Bjork and Joakim Nordstrom overlapped with Krejci’s line for a couple minutes, too, in a funky middle-lineup double shifting by Cassidy.

Defense

Who knows? Torey Krug is out, and Urho Vaakanainen is in. What the pairings look like remains to be seen.

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Urho Vaakanainen? - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk? - Connor Clifton?

Subject to change. You could mix all of these pairings up, but if you want to avoid people playing on their off hand, these are options.

Goalies

Tuukka Rask will be starting tonight.
