Projected Lines: Maple Leafs at Bruins, Game 2

Boston still has scratches up its sleeves. Will we see some lineup changes?

NHL: Minnesota Wild at Boston Bruins
Changes may be game-time decisions; for now, expect more of the same.

An optional skate for Boston this morning leaves everyone guessing. John Moore and Jake DeBrusk skated; since Jake didn’t practice yesterday, hopefully this is just him getting the lead out before tonight’s game.

Boston Bruins


Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Karson Kuhlman

Marcus Johansson - Charlie Coyle - Danton Heinen

Joakim Nordstrom - Noel Acciari - Chris Wagner

With or without a swap for a benched forward, there may be some shuffling here. Kuhlman was demoted for much of the third period, playing no more than a couple minutes, in order to make room for Heinen and Pastrnak flipping around on the top two lines. Personally, I’d have double-shifted Krejci or Acciari and moved Coyle up to wing with either of the top two lines with the way he was finding space in the offensive zone.


Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Connor Clifton

We could suggest double-shifting here, too, but Charlie McAvoy already plays nearly half a game.


Tuukka Rask

Jaroslav Halak

Toronto Maple Leafs


Zach Hyman - John Tavares - Mitch Marner

Andreas Johnsson - Auston Matthews - Kasperi Kapanen

Patrick Marleau - Nazem Kadri - William Nylander

Trevor Moore - Frederik Gauthier - Connor Brown


Morgan Rielly - Ron Hainsey

Jake Muzzin - Nikita Zaitsev

Jake Gardiner - Travis Dermott


Frederik Andersen
