The Boston Bruins face the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight and there are some slight adjustments to lines, as the team makes use of the taxi squad.

Karson Kuhlman will take Chris Wagner’s place on the fourth line and Steven Kampfer is set on the third defensive pairing. Both last played on February 28. It will be Kuhlman’s fourth appearance this season and Kampfer’s second game.

After missing last game because he was on the Covid protocols list, Jake DeBrusk is also back in the lineup.

Jaroslav Halak will start in net, as Tuukka Rask is not ready to return for either game against the Penguins.

Lines:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Craig Smith

Nick Ritchie - Charlie Coyle - Anders Bjork

Trent Frederic - Sean Kuraly - Karson Kuhlman

Defensive pairings:

Matt Grzelcyk - Charlie McAvoy

Jakub Zboril - Connor Clifton

Jarred Tinordi - Steven Kampfer
