Jim Montgomery mentioned earlier this week that he expected to play his NHL top six today, and that's exactly what we'll get, with one major exception: no David Pastrnak.
Here's who to expect this afternoon:
Forwards: John Beecher, Patrice Bergeron, Jake DeBrusk, Nick Foligno, Trent Frederic, Taylor Hall, David Krejci, Jakub Lauko, Fabian Lysell, Marc McLaughlin, Tomas Nosek, Chris Wagner, Pavel Zacha
Defensemen: Jack Ahcan, Mike Callahan, Connor Clifton, Derek Forbort, Kai Wissman, Nick Wolff, Jakub Zboril
Goalies: Kyle Keyser, Keith Kinkaid, Linus Ullmark
Based on yesterday's Group A practice, we have a good idea of the line combinations and pairings to expect today too.
These are lines and defensive pairings from that practice:
Pavel Zacha - Patrice Bergeron - Jake DeBrusk
Taylor Hall - David Krejci - David Pastrnak* practiced yesterday, but not playing today
Trent Frederic - Johnny Beecher - Marc McLaughlin
Nick Foligno - Tomas Nosek - Chris Wagner
Jakub Zboril - Anton Stralman
Derek Forbort - Connor Clifton
Jack Ahcan - Kari Wissmann
