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
