The Boston Bruins face the Buffalo Sabres tonight, and it’s no surprise that Bruce Cassidy will roll out the same line combinations.

The Bruins will also see Matt Grzelcyk return to the lineup. Grzelcyk missed the last five games with an upper-body injury. Jakub Zboril is also back in, having missed Sunday’s matinee with an illness.

Tuukka Rask gets the start in net tonight. Cassidy said he will only play two games this road trip, with the other one likely being Friday’s game.

Depending on how Jaroslav Halak is progressing after missing the last few weeks under COVID protocols, Jeremy Sawyman could get the start on Thursday, Cassidy said.

Lines:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Taylor Hall - David Krejci - Craig Smith

Nick Ritchie - Charlie Coyle - Jake DeBrusk

Sean Kuraly - Curtis Lazar - Chris Wagner

Defensive pairings:

Grzelcyk - Charlie McAvoy

Mike Reilly - Connor Clifton

Jeremy Lauzon - Zboril
