The Bruins are making some alterations tonight, one by choice and another possibly by necessity.

Per the team, DavidBackes will draw back in tonight, with Brett Ritchie serving as the healthy scratch.

Par Lindholm will also be scratched.

Connor Clifton still isn't ready, and Torey Krug is officially a game-time decision with an illness.

Here's what to look for:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Anders Bjork

Danton Heinen - Charlie Coyle - David Backes

Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

On defense, John Moore will play if Krug can't.

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Moore/Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Steven Kampfer

Jaroslav Halak will get the start.
