The winger appeared to aggravate something toward the end of the B’s power kill.
As for the lineups, Boston is shaking things up a bit in the middle six as it. The winger, who Boston scooped up at the trade deadline, is expected to play on the second line left wing, with Karson Kuhlman skating on the right. David Krejci, of course, will center that duo.
Charlie Coyle will be flanked by Anders Bjork on the left and Jake DeBrusk on the right. No changes are expected to the Bruins’ first or fourth lines, nor at the blue line.
Tuukka Rask will be in net for the Bruinsbecause he had to quarantine. Tampa likely will send out Andrei Vasilevskiy.
BOSTON BRUINS (0-1-0)
Brad Marchand–Patrice Bergeron–David Pastrnak
Nick Ritchie–David Krejci–Karson Kuhlman
