With the variability of the standings, this one could easily have wild card and/or playoff seeding implications come the end of the season.
Barry Trotz was coy about the lineup during his daytime media availability, but we know Tuukka Rask will be in goal for the Bruins, Robin Lehner for the Islanders.
Turns out, no changes at all:
The Bruins return their same lineup from a victory over the Capitals, but they will apparently shake up their defensive pairs.
It’s Patrice Bergeron’s 1,000th NHL regular season game.
Game time is 7 p.m. EST at Fleet (non-enema)/TD/North/Bank of Some Sort Garden.
