Bruins lines vs. Ottawa: More like Stempni-BACK

The veteran winger makes his season debut.

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.
