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:
Brad Marchand – Patrice Bergeron – David Pastrnak
Taylor Hall – Charlie Coyle – Tomas Nosek
Jake DeBrusk – Erik Haula – Steen
Trent Frederic – Studnicka – Karson Kuhlman
Matt Grzelcyk – Charlie McAvoy
Mike Reilly – Brandon Carlo
Derek Forbort – Clifton
