Ritchie’s back and the D pairings get a little shuffle with Kampfer out

NHL: Boston Bruins at Tampa Bay Lightning Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Per the team, Brett Ritchie will be back on the third line tonight, after being a healthy scratch Thursday. David Backes will be scratched from the lineup, after being called in for the game against the Jets so everyone on the team could play at least once for his mom in attendance, according to Bruce Cassidy.

Zdeno Chara is, as of this afternoon, good to go.

Steven Kampfer and Par Lindholm are also healthy scratches.

Here are the lines for tonight:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Anders Bjork

Danton Heinen - Charlie Coyle - Brett Ritchie

Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

Defensive pairings

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

John Moore - Matt Grzelcyk

Tuukka Rask gets the start between the pipes.
