It appears that one of the biggest questions heading into tonight's game has been answered:
Heinen playing Game 7.— Joe McDonald (@JoeyMacHockey) April 25, 2018
This (in all likelihood) means Ryan Donato will not play tonight. Sure, Bruce Cassidy could pull a fast one on everyone, but it's not likely.
Per Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic, the lines will resemble what we saw for much of March/April:
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak
Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Rick Nash
Danton Heinen - Riley Nash - David Backes
Tim Schaller - Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari
Expect no changes on defense.
Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy
Torey Krug - Kevan Miller
Matt Grzelcyk - Adam McQuaid
The bottom D pairs seemed to flip around a bit over the last two games, so there's a chance that continues tonight.
Tuukka Rask will be in net, either silencing his critics or adding fuel to the HOT TAEK© fire.
Toronto appears to be rolling with the same lines, electing to continue to keep Leo Komarov on the sideline.
SEE YA AT 7:30!
