Morning Free Association: Donato Time

Embed from Getty Images

After back-to-back losses in games 2 and 3, the Bruins clearly need to work on things and maybe shake up the lineup. There has been talk of scratching third-line winger Danton Heinen since the Toronto series. Given that he only played about 8 minutes on Wednesday night, perhaps Bruce Cassidy thinks it’s time to demote him. For the record, that whole third line had fewer minutes than the forth line of Wingels-Kuraly-Acciari. Almost anyone on that line could use a healthy scratch.

If you’ve been paying attention to Twitter, specifically writers that cover the Bruins, you saw this yesterday:

Okay, that’s KPD, who likes to yell at clouds…

And Haggs, for what that’s worth (makes obscene gesture)…

Upstart bloggers on Bruins Network seem keyed in…

Woah, Ty Anderson? Kid knows what’s going on…

And Fluto (behind the paywall) thinks so, too.

Well, yes, the writers are in agreement, pretty much. Anyone else?

Well, there you go. Perhaps he remembers when another special rookie was put in the lineup in a second round series against Tampa Bay.

It’s time for Ryan. It’s Donato Time.

These aren’t the line combos I’d choose but DeBrusk could possibly breathe some life into Riley Nash and Backes?

Assuming health – Marchand & DeBrusk didn’t practice yesterday, and are game time decisions

*PANIC*

no.. no…
Remain calm
and
***AAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHH****!!!!!!!!

(one assumes they will play, since they seem like two of the players most interested in competing)

Morning, hockey pals!

  • Donato needs to go in. Put him with Krejci and DeBrusk.
  • Third line, Banger and Nash. – Rick-Riley-Backes
  • Fourth line, sit Heinen for a game and do the classic Schaller-Kuraly-Acciari. They haen’t been doing their thing as effectively but we also lost Schaller for a game, too… and they haven’t been egregiously bad like other lines of ours.
