After some time on the shelf, the Bruins are getting some big names back: per the team, both Torey Krug and David Krejci will return to the lineup tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Also returning will be Danton Heinen, who was scratched in the Bruins' New Year's Eve loss to New Jersey.

Here's what to expect tonight:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Charlie Coyle

Anders Bjork - Sean Kuraly - Danton Heinen

Joakim Nordstrom - Par Lindholm - Chris Wagner

You'll notice that David Backes and Brett Ritchie are both slated to be healthy scratches.

On defense, we've got some questions, as Charlie McAvoy is officially a game-time decision.

If he's in, you'll see what you see below. If he's out, I'd imagine Steven Kampfer draws in.

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

John Moore - Matt Grzelcyk

Expect Tuukka Rask to start in net.
