Bruins lines vs. Capitals, Game 5: Tinordi draws in

The Bruins really only had one question mark heading into Game 5: who would replace Kevan Miller?

The answer is Jarred Tinordi, who will draw into the lineup in Miller's place, skating with Connor Clifton.

Tinordi last played in the regular season finale against Washington.

That game was his first action in nearly a month, and his first game since he was bloodied by a hit from behind from Garnet Hathaway back in April.

Needless to say, Tinordi should be pretty fired up to face the Capitals.

The Bruins did have some other options, but the selection of Tinordi makes sense given how this series has gone.

While he might not like the world on fire with exciting rushes from the defensive zone, Tinordi should bring some size and physicality to a series that hasn't been lacking in either.

Other than that, the Bruins are keeping things the same.

Here's what to expect tonight:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Taylor Hall - David Krejci- Craig Smith

Nick Ritchie - Charlie Coyle - Jake DeBrusk

Sean Kuraly - Curtis Lazar - Chris Wagner

Matt Grzelcyk - Charlie McAvoy

Mike Reilly - Brandon Carlo

Tinordi - Clifton

Tuukka Rask will be in net.

Per Samantha Pell, Daniel Sprong will draw in for the Capitals.

Ilya Samsonov appears to be back in net as well.

See ya in a few hours!
