It’s almost game time and the Boston Bruins announced some lineup changes for this afternoon’s game against the San Jose Sharks.

With Nick Foligno placed on injured reserve with an upper-body injury, Jack Studnicka and Oskar Steen have been recalled from the Providence Bruins. Studnicka is projected to center the fourth line while it looks like Steen will slot in for Craig Smith.

John Moore was assigned to Providence, putting Connor Clifton back on that third pairing.

Here’s how the lineup is projected to look:

Lines:

Brad Marchand – Patrice Bergeron – David Pastrnak

Taylor Hall – Charlie Coyle – Tomas Nosek

Jake DeBrusk – Erik Haula – Steen

Trent Frederic – Studnicka – Karson Kuhlman

Defensive pairings:

Matt Grzelcyk – Charlie McAvoy

Mike Reilly – Brandon Carlo

Derek Forbort – Clifton
