NHL: Boston Bruins at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Didn’t you have fun on Saturday night? Well it’s time to do it again!

In preparation to battle the Capitals a second time, the Bruins will tinker with their lineup.

Head Coach Bruce Cassidy expects Charlie Coyle to play after missing Sunday’s practice with an upper-body injury, but Coyle is officially listed as a game-time decision.

Craig Smith will bump up to the second line, skating alongside Nick Ritchie and David Krejci. Karson Kuhlman will slot in on the fourth line, to the right of Anders Bjork and Sean Kuraly.

Jaroslav Halak will start in net.

Here’s what you can expect to see:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie - David Krejci - Craig Smith

Trent Frederic - Charlie Coyle - Chris Wagner

Anders Bjork - Sean Kuraly - Karson Kuhlman

Jeremy Lauzon - Charlie McAvoy

Connor Clifton - Brandon Carlo

Jakub Zboril - Kevan Miller

Jaroslav Halak

See ya tonight!
