Banged Up Bruins Look To Take 2-0 Series Lead Back To Boston

The Boston Bruins will look to take a 2-0 series lead back to Boston with a victory over the Ottawa Senators tonight at the Canadian Tire Centre.

The B's will have to do so without second line center David Krejci and defenseman Colin Miller.

Joe Morrow will step in for Miller and coach Bruce Cassidy is confident Morrow can do the job.

"Joe's been with us all year so we're comfortable if we have to make that move," Cassidy said Friday before it was confirmed Miller would be out.

Morrow last played on January 22nd.

Krejci will miss game two and it's expected that Ryan Spooner will slot into the second line center position between Drew Stafford and David Backes. Sean Kuraly will draw into the lineup and is expected to play on the fourth line with Dominic Moore and Tim Schaller.

The Bruins will have to be careful to not fall into the trap of the Ottawa Senators defensive scheme once again as the B's were held without a shot for the whole second period of Game 1.

"I think definitely (improvements are needed) in the way we take care of the puck," Brad Marchand said Friday. "You saw in the second period, we played right into their hands. And that's when they're at their best."

Here's a look at tonight's probable lineup, what do you think of these lines?
