Yesterday, the Boston Bruins were all about movement, both within and without of the organization.
First within: David Pastrnak is going to slide down a line to play alongside his idol growing up, David Krejci. Jake DeBrusk will play his off-side on the Bergeron line. Head coach Bruce Cassidy hopes that this temporary arrangement will shake up the scoring, which has been down the past few games.
#NHLBruins practice lines:
Marchand – Bergeron – DeBrusk
Ritchie – Krejci – Pastrnak
Bjork – Coyle – Smith
Frederic – Kuraly – Wagner
Blidh – McKegg – Kuhlman
Lauzon – McAvoy
Clifton – Carlo
Moore – Kampfer

Jakub Zboril is still not on the injury report but did not practice yesterday. In his stead, John Moore looks to be back playing to Kevan Miller’s left. Miller had a maintenance day on Monday, so Steven Kampfer came up from the taxi squad to shore up the third pairing.
Matt Grzelcyk is still listed as day-to-day. He had an MRI for his lower body injury but there is no news on it yet. He’s out of practice for tomorrow.
Neither Matt Grzelcyk nor Jakub Zboril is expected to practice tomorrow. Kevan Miller was given a rest day.

Bruce Cassidy says Matt Grzelcyk had a MRI. He and Zboril won’t skate tomorrow.

Ondrej Kase has been skating on his own with the Bruins skating coach Kim Brandvold. He’s not practicing nor taking line drills. Cassidy can’t tell when he’ll be back at this point.
Finally, the move out of the organization: Par Lindholm was placed on waivers on Sunday so that he could return to Sweden to resume his career. He has apparently cleared.
Lindholm was a star for the #SHL side with 78 points across 87 games in last 2 seasons with Skelleftea.

It’s tough to get playing time in the NHL. Godspeed, Par.
