Bruins Game 3 lines: Moore to love

New, comments

Bruce Cassidy is going with the safe choice on defense.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Boston Bruins at Carolina Hurricanes Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins really only had one decision to make before tonight’s Game 3, and Bruce Cassidy elected to go with the safe one: John Moore will draw into the lineup in place of the injured Matt Grzelcyk.

Moore last played in Game 4 of the Carolina series. He’s the easy choice, with the wild card being Urho Vaakanainen and the other option being Steven Kampfer.

The rest of the lines should look pretty familiar.

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - David Backes

Marcus Johansson - Charlie Coyle - Danton Heinen

Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari

On the blueline, you’ll have:

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

John Moore - Connor Clifton

It’ll be Tuukka Rask between the pipes.

For the Blues, they’ve settled on Zach Sanford to take the place of the suspended Oskar Sundqvist. Other than that, they’ll ice the same group.

See ya at 8ish!
