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!
