New, comments

No changes for the Bruins, but a missing piece for Tampa.

No one got hurt, and it worked out OK in Game 1, so...why change a thing?

Bruce Cassidy is electing to keep his Game 1 lineup intact for tonight’s Game 2, with no changes in personnel anticipated.

Your forward lines:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Ondrej Kase

Nick Ritchie - Charlie Coyle - Anders Bjork

Joakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

On defense:

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzeclyk - Connor Clifton

Jaroslav Halak will be in net.

For Tampa, they’ll be missing a pretty significant piece:

Per Smith, McDonagh has averaged 26 minutes of ice time in the playoffs, and skated around 8 minutes against the Bergeron line in Game 1.

Smith speculates that either Braydon Coburn or Luke Schenn will replace McDonagh.
