Bruins lines vs. Florida: Ku-ready to go

New, comments

Back in action for the former Captain Fishbowl.

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Boston Bruins Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins will be without Marcus Johansson tonight, but they'll have another guy coming back: Sean Kuraly is ready to go!

Kuraly will draw back in, though where remains to be seen. David Krejci needs a new wing with Johansson out, and Joakim Nordstrom will probably be bumped from the fourth line so Kuraly can take his regular spot.

The Bruins can do a few different things: Peter Cehlarik on line two, Nordstrom on line two, Kuraly on three...who knows?

Here's my best guess:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Danton Heinen

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Peter Cehlarik

Joakim Nordstrom - Charlie Coyle - David Backes

Chris Wagner - Noel Acciari - Sean Kuraly

There's also a chance a guy like Karson Kuhlman could slide in at the last minute.

On defense, things should be stable.

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Brandon Carlo - Torey Krug

Matt Grzelcyk - John Moore

Tuukka Rask will start.

UPDATE (2:35 PM): The Bruins announced a few minutes ago that Karson Kuhlman has, in fact, been recalled on an emergency basis.

He may end up slotting in for Johansson, bumping Cehlarik (or Nordstrom) to Level 9.
