Why change what’s been working.

The Boston Bruins are set for their middle game against the Buffalo Sabres tonight and Bruce Cassidy will roll out the same lines.

The only change comes on defense, as Steven Kampfer will sub in for Jakub Zboril on the last pairing.

Cassidy confirmed Jeremy Swayman will start in net. Tuukka Rask will likely take tomorrow’s game.

Kevan Miller could return tomorrow, Cassidy said, adding he was only going to be used for one game in the back-to-back. Miller had been dealing with a foot infection that sent him to the hospital, but skated yesterday.

Here’s how things are projected to look:

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:

Matt Grzelcyk - Charlie McAvoy

Mike Reilly - Connor Clifton

Jeremy Lauzon - Kampfer

Swayman will start
