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!
