The Boston Bruins play their final game of the season tonight as they take on the Washington Capitals.
It’ll be a playoff preview by jersey color only as the Bruins and Caps will meet in the first round but with different faces.
Head coach Bruce Cassidy said he’s resting all his vets tonight so they can get some rest before the playoffs.
When he says all his vets, he means it.
Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak, Taylor Hall, David Krejci, Craig Smith, Sean Kuraly, Matt Grzelcyk, Charlie McAvoy, Mike Reilly, Brandon Carlo, Jeremy Lauzon, Tuukka Rask and Kevan Miller will all get the night off.
This lineup is almost unrecognizable.
Jeremy Swayman gets the start between the pipes.
Ritchie -- Lazar -- Wagner
DeBrusk -- Studnicka -- Kuhlman
Frederic -- Steen -- Senyshyn
Blidh -- McKegg -- Hughes
Tinordi -- Kampfer
Zboril -- Vaakanainen
Ahcan -- Clifton
