UPDATE: The Boston Bruins face the Buffalo Sabres this afternoon and there’s some adjusting being made before puck drop as the Bruins announced Brad Marchand is out today due to COVID protocols.

Trent Frederic will fill his spot on the top line. Jack Studnicka is also back in the lineup.

Karson Kuhlman will be out of the lineup, as he couldn’t hold a stick yesterday after blocking a shot with his hand last game. Zach Senyshyn will slide into his spot on the third line, Bruce Cassidy said yesterday after practice.

Daniel Vladar gets the start in net, as Tuukka Rask is unavailable this weekend.

Lines from yesterday’s skate:

Frederic- Patrice Bergeron- David Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie- David Krejci- Craig Smith

Anders Bjork- Charlie Coyle- Senyshyn

Studnicka- Greg McKegg- Chris Wagner

Defensive pairings:

Matt Grzelcyk- Charlie McAvoy

Jakub Zboril- Connor Clifton

Jarred Tinordi- Steven Kampfer
