He was recalled this morning, and he was recalled for a reason: Lee Stempniak will make his season debut tonight.
The Bruins confirmed this morning that Stempniak will, in fact, play, and will play on David Krejci’s right.
Another minor change: in practice, at least, Joakim Nordstrom replaced Peter Ceharlik on Krejci’s left. That may be one that Bruce Cassidy tweaks as needed.
Here we go:
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Danton Heinen
Joakim Nordstrom- David Krejci - Lee Stempniak
Peter Cehlarik - Charlie Coyle - David Backes
Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari - Chris Wagner
The defense will remain the same.
Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy
Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo
John Moore - Matt Grzelcyk
Tuukka Rask will start, with Jaroslav Halak playing tomorrow night in Pittsburgh.
