Lines: Wild vs Bruins

New, comments

Let’s get wild, shall we?

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Boston Bruins Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Lots of changes will be made when the Bruins welcome the Minnesota yo town on Saturday night. The Bruins did provide some pre-game notes from Bruce Cassidy after hosting an optional skate this morning.

  • Torey Krug and Brett Ritchie will return to the lineup. The former missed the past five contests with an upper-body, while an infection forced Ritchie from the lineup six of the past seven games.
  • Urho Vaakanainen has been re-assigned to Providence.
  • Steven Kampher will replace Connor Clifton on the third defensive pairing alongside Matt Grzelcyk.
  • Pars Lindholm is out after receiving 18 stitches to the gash on his leg.
  • David Backes sported a non-contact jersey in the optional skate this morning.
