The "will he or won't he?" question has been answered: Jack Studnicka will make his NHL debut tonight in Montreal.
Per the team, Studnicka is in the lineup. Here's how the rest of the lines looked this morning:
Brad Marchand - David Krejci - David Pastrnak
Jake DeBrusk - Jack Studnicka - Charlie Coyle
Anders Bjork - Sean Kuraly - Danton Heinen
Joakim Nordstrom - Par Lindholm - Chris Wagner
Brendan Gaunce was the extra forward at practice, so it looks like he may not play tonight.
On defense, nothing has really changed.
Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy
Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo
Matt Grzelcyk - Connor Clifton
Jaroslav Halak will start tonight, with Tuukka Rask getting the next game against Ottawa.
Your thoughts? 2C for Studnicka!
