Bruins lines vs. Tampa: Under the weather

Brad Marchand is questionable tonight.

The Bruins had some new-look lines at their morning skate, and for a pretty notable reason: Brad Marchand didn't skate, and he's officially a game-time decision due to illness.

As a result, you have to take the lines with a grain of salt, as they're subject to pretty major changes.

Based on practice this morning, here's what to expect:

Jake DeBrusk - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie - David Krejci - Ondrej Kase

Anders Bjork - Charlie Coyle - Chris Wagner

Sean Kuraly - Par Lindholm - Joakim Nordstrom

It'll be interesting to see what Cassidy does if, in fact, Marchand can play. The likely move would be to put DeBrusk back at 3LW and push Bjork to 3RW; however, per the team, Wagner is going to play on the third line tonight regardless.

That means that if Marchand can go, Bjork will likely be the odd-man out. Karson Kuhlman is nowhere to be found either.

On defense, things are stable:

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Jeremy Lauzon

It looks like Tuukka Rask will get the start, but as always, that's subject to change.

See you tonight!
