Game Day Thread: Bruins at Fancy Cats

Bruins Vs Fancy Cats

Tonight the Bruins face the Fabulous Florida Fancy Cats in Sunrise.

On Monday, the Bruins faced the Carolina Hurricanes. After falling to 1-4, the Boys in white & gold staged a comeback, with a rapid series of goals from Grizz, Heinen and Pasta.
In fact, Pastrnak potted 3 goals, and left the stadium with a new hat
three hats
Chara, Krug & Debrusk all left the game early due to undefined injuries. Hopefully they will all be available for this next game.
merely a flesh wound
Yep, no worries.
Except that Anton Blidh & Paul Postma were recalled from Providence on an emergency basis.
And Chara and DeBrusk weren’t skating in the morning skate.
it will be fine, I'm sure

The Panthers, while having lost their last game are on a bit of a hot streak, and have won 8 of their last 10 matches, scoring at a pace of 3.90 goals per game while allowing 2.60. At 75 standings-points, they are in the middle of the wild-card race, being a mere 3 points out of a spot, and 4 from the first wildcard spot.
Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, Evgeni Dadonov, and Keith Yandle have each put up seven points in their last five games.
dangit!

Anyway, let’s do some lines…
Mamma like!

Based on morning skate, the lineup for the Bruins should look like this (with Tuukka on door duty):

The Panthers picked up Frankie-V at the trade deadline, and Connor Brickley has become a regular in their lineup.


Alex Petrovic is doubtful with a lower body injury, and would likely be replaced by Ian McCoshen.
We can expect the following lines:

Panthers Forwards

Evgeny Dadonov — Aleksander Barkov — Nick Bjugstad
Jonathan Huberdeau — Vincent Trocheck — Frank Vatrano
Jamie McGinn — Jared McCann — Denis Malgin
Maxim Mamin — Derek MacKenzie — Colton Sceviour

Panthers Defense

Keith Yandle — Aaron Ekblad
Michael Matheson — Mark Pysyk
MacKenzie Weegar — Alex Petrovic (Ian McCoshen)

Is this gonna be another one of those games where we put 45 shots on goal and maybe only get goals in the last 2 min?
