The Boston Bruins face off against the New York Islanders tonight. The team had a late practice last night followed by this morning’s skate and it looks like at least a few bodies will return from injury.

Trent Frederic and Jarred Tinordi will take warm-ups and be game-time decisions based on how they feel, but are both “probable,” Bruce Cassidy said. If they aren’t ready, Jack Studnicka and Jack Ahcan will sub in.

David Pastrnak, David Krejci and Craig Smith were all removed from the COVID protocols list yesterday and will be back on their respective lines for the game.

Tuukka Rask gets the start in net tonight. It will be his first game since March 7, after being sidelined with an undisclosed injury.

Lines:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie - Krejci - Smith

Anders Bjork - Charlie Coyle - Karson Kuhlman

Frederic - Greg McKegg - Chris Wagner

Defensive pairings:

Matt Grzelcyk - Charlie McAvoy

Jakub Zboril - Connor Clifton

Tinordi - Steven Kampfer
