Bruins lines for Game 7: More like Donat-no

Bruins lines for Game 7: More like Donat-no

A youngster is getting one wing. But who? It appears that one of the biggest questions heading into tonight's game has been answered: Heinen playing Game 7.— Joe McDonald (@JoeyMacHockey) April 25, 2018 This (in all likelihood) means Ryan Donato will not play tonight. Sure, Bruce Cassidy could pull a fast one on everyone, but it's not likely. Per Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic, the lines will resemble what we saw for much of March/April: Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Rick Nash Danton Heinen - Riley Nash - David Backes Tim Schaller -...

Game 6 lines: Wingelmania?

Game 6 lines: Wingelmania?

It looks like Bruce Cassidy might do some tinkering... The Bruins played a sluggish game on Saturday night, and as a result, it looks like they might be doing something to raise the energy level: Looks like Tommy Wingels is in. Danton Heinen is out.— Fluto Shinzawa (@FlutoShinzawa) April 23, 2018 If this is the case, here’s what to expect: Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Rick Nash Tommy Wingels - Riley Nash - David Backes Tim Schaller - Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari It’s important to note that Bruce Cassidy said he would make final...

Game 5 Lines: Back in business?

Maybe probably playing. Maybe. Officially, Patrice Bergeron will probably play tonight. Per the lineup the team emailed out to us, he’s in. REJOICE. Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Rick Nash Danton Heinen - Riley Nash - David Backes Tim Schaller - Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari On defense: Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy Torey Krug - Adam McQuaid Matt Grzelcyk - Kevan Miller You know that Tuukka Rask will be between the pipes. For Toronto, they’ll be getting reinforcements with the return of Nazem Kadri, as his three-game suspension is over. Zach...

Game 4 Bruins vs. Leafs lines

Game 4 Bruins vs. Leafs lines

Any changes from Monday, or let it ride? A little late, but better than never! There should be no changes for the Bruins up front: Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Rick Nash Danton Heinen - Riley Nash - David Backes Tim Schaller - Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari On defense, Matt Grzelcyk is a game-time decision, but my bet is that he goes. Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy Torey Krug - Kevan Miller Matt Grzelcyk - Adam McQuaid Tuukka Rask For the Leafs, Leo Komarov still isn’t ready. Don’t expect many other changes. Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews -...

Bruins rookies maintain strong play under bright lights of playoffs

Bruins rookies maintain strong play under bright lights of playoffs

TORONTO — One of the biggest questions facing the Bruins heading into the playoffs was whether their handful of rookies would be able to keep up their level of play once the spotlight of the postseason warmed up.The answer through three games?So far, so good.Jake DeBrusk has a goal, an assist and made a tremendous rush in Game 3 against Toronto that nearly resulted in a goal for David Krejci. Danton Heinen shook off a tentative first period in Game 1 and has done a good job of winning pucks and battling along the boards. Sean Kuraly, still technically a rookie though he played in the...

Playoffs? As goes David Krejci, so go the Bruins

Playoffs? As goes David Krejci, so go the Bruins

The #2 center is the engine behind much of the Bruins’ success, or the reason for many of their failures. (This post was written by a contributor, Al Saniuk. Follow Al on Twitter: @prideandpower1) David Krejci is a perfectly adequate second-line center in the NHL. He’s not flashy, nor are his numbers. But he is a consistent 50-60 point player, year after year, as long as he’s healthy. Drafted in the second round (63rd overall) in 2004, Krejci has been a mainstay on the Bruins roster since 2008. Since that first year, he’s averaged 53.7 points per season, excluding the...

Is there room for Ryan Donato in the playoff lineup?

Is there room for Ryan Donato in the playoff lineup?

If (and it's a big if) the team is healthy, where does the rookie fit? Ryan Donato has had a great start to his NHL career. The Harvard kid has played 12 games since signing his contract, and has recorded 5 goals and 4 assists. He's been dangerous on the power play and has shown that he has a great shot. There still might not be room for him in the lineup come Thursday. If the Bruins are fully healthy, it's hard to see where Donato would slot in. He's done well playing with David Krejci, but that wing is Rick Nash's when he's back. He's not taking a spot on the top line. That leaves two...

Playoff Line Projections: What will the Bruins look like?

There’s a lot to think about regarding the beginning of the playoffs. Starting with...well...who plays with who? With the playoffs upon us, and players returning from injury, hard choices need to be made by Bruce Cassidy, and the lineups could look like almost anything with the way the Bruins ended their regular season. So we polled our authors to see what they think the lineup looks like! Sky: Forwards: Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Rick Nash/Ryan Donato Danton Heinen - Riley Nash - David Backes/Ryan Donato Tim Schaller - Sean...

Ryan Donato draws on Harvard past in faceoff circle

Subtitle: Brings faceoff skill from college ranksRookie Ryan Donato developed his aptitude for cheating in the faceoff circle at Harvard.Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy removed Donato from David Krejci’s line and placed him in the middle of the third line with Danton Heinen and Brian Gionta for last night’s pivotal season finale against the Florida Panthers at the Garden.Cassidy saw the wisdom of the shift in Saturday’s win over Ottawa when Donato replaced David Backes over the dot on the third line. Donato had seven faceoff wins without a loss against the Senators, a solid contribution for...
