The Boston Bruins take on the New Jersey Devils this evening and Bruce Cassidy is shaking things up on the fourth line.

Anton Blidh and Karson Kuhlman are in as Greg McKegg and Chris Wagner will sit out for the game. Blidh was recalled from the Providence Bruins for today’s game and has appeared in two games with the Bs this season, the last one on February 5.

On defense, Jakub Zboril will slide down to play with Steven Kampfer as Jeremy Lauzon will be paired with Connor Clifton.

The Bruins are still waiting more test results for Brad Marchand, after he was placed on the COVID protocols list yesterday. Cassidy has not completely ruled him out for tonight, but said they are preparing to play without him.

Jaroslav Halak will start in net.

Lines:

Trent Frederic- Patrice Bergeron- David Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie- David Krejci- Craig Smith

Anders Bjork- Charlie Coyle- Zach Senyshyn

Blidh- Jack Studnicka- Kuhlman

Defensive pairings:

Matt Grzelcyk- Charlie McAvoy

Lauzon- Clifton

Zboril- Kampfer

Halak get the start
