Curtis Lazar finds himself on the injured list today, and we’re still missing Brandon Carlo and Kevan Miller for their longer-term issues.
Based on some line rushes this morning at practice, the third and fourth lines will look a little different tonight.
Bruce Cassidy has elected to bring Jake DeBrusk back into the mix to replace the injured Lazar, slotting DeBrusk back onto his natural left wing on Charlie Coyle’s line.
Nick Ritchie, in turn, has been bumped down to 4LW.
While some fans were clamoring for Trent Frederic, it appears that Cassidy would rather go with the guys he’s a bit more familiar with.
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak
Taylor Hall - David Krejci - Craig Smith
Jake DeBrusk - Charlie Coyle - Karson Kuhlman
Nick Ritchie - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner
Matt Grzelcyk - Charlie McAvoy
Mike Reilly - Jeremy Lauzon
Jarred Tinordi - Connor Clifton
Rask was first off the ice and thus is likely to start tonight, assuming his injury won’t prevent it. Don’t be surprised if we get SwayWatch engaged later this afternoon!
