The Bruins got some bad news on Friday morning when Torey Krug was placed on injured reserve. They got some worse news on Friday afternoon when it was revealed that Charlie McAvoy won’t play tonight, and is day-to-day with an injury.


With both Krug and McAvoy on the shelf, it looks like Steven Kampfer and John Moore are drawing in, along with Connor Clifton.

Here’s what to expect:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Danton Heinen

Sean Kuraly - Charlie Coyle - Anders Bjork

Joakim Nordstrom - Par Lindholm - Chris Wagner

On defense, things are a bit scary.

Zdeno Chara - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Connor Clifton

John Moore - Steven Kampfer

Jaroslav Halak will start tonight, with Tuukka Rask getting the home game against Buffalo.

See ya tonight!
