Some game-time decisions for both teams!

OK, OK. It’s probably going to be a game time decision for Patrice Bergeron.

If he’s out, it’ll be similar to Tuesday:

Brad Marchand - David Krejci - David Pastrnak

Anders Bjork - Charlie Coyle - Danton Heinen

Jake DeBrusk - Par Lindholm - Brett Ritchie

Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

If Bergie is Back™ :

who knows?! One would assume he’ll get his wingers back, but the Krejci substitution worked out better than expected. Perhaps this is the time to really experiment with the lineup, and get everyone on the same page?

Per Conor Ryan, here’s a glimpse at how the top nine will look, according to Cassidy:

Defense

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Matt Grzelcyk - Brandon Carlo

Urho Vaakanainen - Connor Clifton

Goalies

Tuukka Rask

Jaroslav Halak

Buffalo Sabres

Forwards

Of note: Marcus Johansson and Johan Larsson could return, and totally shuffle this.

Victor Olofsson - Jack Eichel - Sam Reinhart

Jeff Skinner - Evan Rodrigues - Conor Sheary

Jimmy Vesey - Casey Middelstadt - Curtis Lazar

Zemgus Girgensons - Rasmus Asplund - John Gilmour

Defensemen

Jake McCabe - Rasmus Ristolainen

Rasmus Dahlin - Brandon Montour

Henri Jokiharju - Colin Miller

Goalies

Carter Hutton

Linus Ullmark
