Game Day Thread: Bruins @ Flyers

Hey! That's Brad, on the TV!
The Bruins continue on the road, visiting the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2nd half of an NHL double-header. See them on NBCSN, SportsNet and TVAS.

Last time in Bruins Hockey…

The Bruins were on the road, battling their hated rival, the Washington Capitals.

David Pastrnak back. Pasta good.
Bruins good. Capitals bad.

The Bruins are now at 6-1-2, putting them at a decent 3rd in the MassMutual East division, 1 point behind the division-leading Caps.


What will be the lines today?

David Pastrnak is back so the big 3 forward line is together again.

we're getting the band back together!

The lines are similar to what we had seen vs Washington:
Forward Ondrej Kase is still on IR, and Jack Studnicka — who took a big hit in the last Pittsburgh game — has joined him there. Jake DeBrusk is out, managing a lower body injury. Craig Smith has been playing on the Krejci line, with some success. Karson Kuhlman was up from the taxi squad, but he’s back down and Anton Blidh is debuting tonight.

On the defense, lefty Matt Grzelcyk has been missing some playing time, bringing in Connor Clifton in his stead. Cliffy is expected to be in the lineup again today. Meanwhile, John Moore is back on the roster after having spent time on IR, bringing the defensive group up to 8 players.
DeBrusk and Grzelcyk wer both seen skating at the teams training facility today.

Tuukka Rask will be in net.
