With Nick Ritchie back, Jack Studnicka is out of the lineup and Bruce Cassidy has made adjustments to the second and third lines.
Jake DeBrusk is bumped to Charlie Coyle’s line and the rest looks pretty much the same as what we saw Sunday (and in the regular season).
Based on practice yesterday, here’s what to expect:
Brad Marchand – Patrice Bergeron – David Pastrnak
Ritchie – David Krejci – Karson Kuhlman
Anders Bjork –Coyle – DeBrusk
Joakim Nordstrom – Sean Kuraly – Chris Wagner
Zdeno Chara – Charlie McAvoy
Torey Krug – Brandon Carlo
Matt Grzelcyk – Jeremy Lauzon
Tuukka Rask will start in net.
There’s a chance that there could be a slight alteration if Par Lindholm ends up getting the nod, but it’d just be a shuffle on the fourth line.
