Bruins lines vs. New Jersey: Marchand and Carlo are back

Some reinforcements!

NHL: Washington Capitals at Boston Bruins Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

After a frustrating 1-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday, help is on the way for the Bruins: both Brad Marchand and Brandon Carlo are slated to return to action tonight.

Marchand, who has missed the past few games due to COVID protocols, may need final testing clearance to play, but appears to be on track.

Carlo is good to go after recovering from his concussion; this will be his first game since March 5.

Bruce Cassidy also confirmed that Jaroslav Halak will start in net.

Here's what to expect, based on the morning skate:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie - David Krejci - Craig Smith

Anders Bjork - Charlie Coyle - Zach Senyshyn

Anton Blidh - Trent Frederic - Karson Kuhlman

On defense, it looks the like BU Pair of Matt Grzelcyk and Charlie McAvoy will break up with Carlo's return.

Jeremy Lauzon - Charlie McAvoy

Matt Grzelcyk - Brandon Carlo

Jakub Zboril - Connor Clifton

See ya tonight!
