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.
As for the Wild side...(da dum tss)
