After a big win against the New York Islanders last night, the Boston Bruins are right back at it tonight.
Not only are they right back at it tonight but they'll be playing those same Islanders once again.
We can likely expect a better effort from the Islanders who sit in second place in the MassMutual Division but only have a 6 point lead on the Bruins with the B's having 3 games in a hand, so another win tonight for Boston would be huge.
Tuukka Rask returned between the pipes last night and looked solid saving 22 of 23 shots he faced for the win. He'll take it easy tonight though as Jeremy Swayman will get the start and Dan Vladar will take on the back up roll. The 22 year old Swayman has looked good overall and will be looking to build off his win against the Buffalo Sabres on the 13th where he registered the win giving up just two goals on 23 shots.
Forward Taylor Hall got on the board last night for the first time while Craig Smith and Brad Marchand stayed hot and they'll be looking for more of the same tonight.
Kevan Miller remains day to day while Matt Grzelcyuk has returned to skating but won't play tonight.
Check out the full lineup below:
Brad Marchand -- Patrice Bergeron -- David Pastrnak
Taylor Hall -- David Krejci -- Craig Smith
Nick Ritchie -- Charlie Coyle -- Jake DeBrusk
Sean Kuraly -- Curtis Lazar -- Chris Wagner
Jeremy Lauzon -- Charlie McAvoy
Jakub Zboril -- Connor Clifton
Mike Reilly -- Steven Kampfer
