Projected lines: Bruins host Flames in this new post-trade-deadline world

New, comments

There’s a fair amount of anticipation - and guesswork - leading up to this game’s rosters.

Forwards

First off, take these with plenty of salt. only some of the bottom six forwards skated this morning so it’s even more unclear as to who will slot in.

Ondrej Kase is the new look here, and as might have been initially expected, he pushes the remaining forwards down the roster a little bit. There should be some allowance for learning curve and his speed combined with his so-called “cultural alignment” with fellow Czech David Krejci might make adjusting that much easier. It’s no promise that he sticks in the top six. If I were a betting human, Par Lindholm will end up getting scratched to put Nick Ritchie in the lineup, if only to see what he can do with limited playing time.

UPDATE: Kase out; suspect Kuhlman will be on Krejci’s right. that leaves room for Lindholm to stay; still leaves Joakim Nordstrom and Anton Blidh as scratches.

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Ondrej Kase Karson Kuhlman

Nick Ritchie - Charlie Coyle - Anders Bjork

Par Lindholm - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

Defense

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Jeremy Lauzon

Connor Clifton might be back with the big club, but he likely needs a bit more conditioning before he starts rotating with Lauzon and John Moore (who?).

Defense

A big change for defensive depth in Calgary, as Forbort and Gustafsson are expected to take over third-pairing minutes... at least, for now.
