Good news, folks!
“Looks like” David Pastrnak will play tonight, per Bruce Cassidy. But will see how he is following morning skate. He’s officially a game-time decision.— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 19, 2019
From there, it’s kind of hard to figure out what Bruce Cassidy is going to do with the lines. He will probably put David Pastrnak on the first line, at least for now.
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak
After that, it’s a grab bag. You could leave the second line intact, and just make your changes further down the lineup.
JakeDeBrusk - David Krejci - Charlie Coyle
Paul Carey - Sean Kuraly - Danton Heinen
Chris Wagner - Noel Acciari - David Backes
I have no idea, folks. Joakim Nordstrom could sit. David Backes could sit. Noel Acciari could sit. It’s truly a mystery.
Take the lines about and throw them in a blender.
On defense, things should be more standard, as neither Kevan Miller nor Torey Krug is ready to return.
Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy
John Moore - Brandon Carlo
Steven Kampfer - Connor Clifton
With Jaroslav Halak going on Saturday night, Tuukka Rask goes tonight.
What kind of lines would you like to see?
