The Boston Bruins close out their season series against the Buffalo Sabres this afternoon and there will be adjustments to the fourth line.

UPDATE: Jake DeBrusk will take Trent Frederic’s spot in the lineup, after being a healthy scratch the past two games.

Chris Wagner had a maintenance day yesterday, but Bruce Cassidy mentioned he’d likely be out for the game. He’s officially been ruled out for today. Karson Kuhlman will fill his spot.

All other lines remained unchanged as Charlie Coyle is still slotted on the right wing which Cassidy said was both to spark offense with him and also out of necessity with all the left shots on the team.

Kevan Miller and Mike Reilly also missed practice. This has become the new normal for Miller to not overwork his knee and Cassidy expects Reilly to play. Brandon Carlo skated, but is still looking at a return next week.

Jeremy Swayman will start in net.

Lines:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Taylor Hall - David Krejci - Craig Smith

Nick Ritchie - Sean Kuraly - Coyle

DeBrusk - Curtis Lazar - Kuhlman

How defensive pairings should look:

Matt Grzelcyk – Charlie McAvoy

Reilly – Miller

Jeremy Lauzon – Connor Clifton

Swayman gets the start
