Lineup Updates vs. Lightning

By Matt McGuirk

Following the Bruins’ poor showing in Sunday’s round robin opener, head coach Bruce Cassidy is making some changes for this afternoon’s meeting with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Jack Studnicka will come out of the lineup for Nick Ritchie, who will be making his postseason debut. Studnicka fired three shots on goal in 11:36 and spent most of the game on David Krejci’s right wing. It’s disappointing for Studnicka, who was arguably one of Boston’s better forwards against the Flyers.

Ritchie will play on Krejci’s left side as Jake DeBrusk slides down to the third line.

Tuukka Rask is also slated to start in goal after he was deemed unfit to play on Sunday.

Tonight’s lineup, according to Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic:

Forward lines:

Brad Marchand – Patrice Bergeron – David Pastrnak

Nick Ritchie – David Krejci – Karson Kuhlman

Anders Bjork – Charlie Coyle – Jake DeBrusk

Joakim Nordstrom – Sean Kuraly – Chris Wagner

Defense pairs:

Zdeno Chara – Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug – Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk – Jeremy Lauzon


Tuukka Rask

Jaroslav Halak
