Bruins lines vs. New Jersey: Urho time

With Brandon Carlo out for the foreseeable future, the biggest question was who Bruce Cassidy would put in his place.

For today, at least, the answer is Urho Vaakanainen, as the young Finn will play on the right side, per the team.

It appears likely that Vaakanainen will take Carlo’s spot on that second pairing, but Cassidy could elect to move Connor Clifton up instead.

We’ll see! Other than that, don’t expect many changes.

As is normally the case with Cassidy, however, it wouldn’t be surprising if lines get shuffled if the B’s have as slow a start as they did in the last game against New Jersey.

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie - David Krejci - Craig Smith

Trent Frederic - Charlie Coyle - Jake DeBrusk

Anders Bjork - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner

Jakub Zboril - Charlie McAvoy

Matt Grzelcyk - Urho Vaakanainen

Jarred Tinordi - Connor Clifton

Tuukka Rask will be back between the pipes.

See you in a few hours!
