With their two-game homestand against the Buffalo Sabres postponed due to COVID-19, the Bruins were the beneficiaries of additional time to rest.
For Matt Grzelcyk and Jake DeBrusk, that paid dividends: both will return to the lineup tonight in the city that never sleeps.
Grzelcyk missed four games due to a lower-body injury and will slot back in alongside Brandon Carlo. DeBrusk has missed the last five tilts due to a lower-body injury and will skate on the left side of the third line with Charlie Coyle and Anders Bjork.
The Bruins will line up as follows:
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak
Nick Ritchie - David Krejci - Craig Smith
Jake DeBrusk - Charlie Coyle - Anders Bjork
Trent Frederic - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner
Jeremy Lauzon - Charlie McAvoy
Matt Grzelcyk - Brandon Carlo
Jakub Zboril - Kevan Miller
Rangers Head Coach David Quinn confirmed that the team will roll the same lines as in Monday night’s 2-0 defeat to the New York Islanders.
Alexandar Georgiev will get the nod between the pipes.
Kreider - Zibanejad - Buchnevich
Panarin - Strome - Kakko
Lafreniere - Howden - Di Giuseppe
Lemieux - Rooney - Gauthier
Lindgren - Fox
Miller - Trouba
Hajek - Bitetto
