Bruins lines vs. Minnesota: Par for the course

A few changes to last night’s lineup.

NHL: Boston Bruins at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

With games on back-to-back nights, you’d expect the Bruins to make a few changes. They appear to have at least one in mind, with one other possibility.

Per the team, Par Lindholm will play tonight in place of Sean Kuraly. Kuraly, isn’t injured; instead, this is a “wake-up call” scratch.

Also per the team, Danton Heinen is a game-time decision.

With that in mind, here’s what you can look for tonight:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Karson Kuhlman

Joakim Nordstrom/Danton Heinen - Charlie Coyle - Anders Bjork

Anton Blidh - Par Lindholm - Chris Wagner

Things could change on the second and third lines, depending on whether or not Heinen plays.

On defense, expect things to remain a bit more stable.

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Jeremy Lauzon

After Tuukka Rask was excellent last night, he’ll get himself a night off. Jaroslav Halak will make his first post-break start.

See ya tonight!
