The Boston Bruins are in Nashville tonight as they'll take on the Predators.
It'll be an emotional game for the Predators as they introduce their new coach John Hynes just a day after the Predators fired Peter Laviolette.
It's a pretty important game for the Bruins as well as they have to gain back some ground on the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning. Both teams have been on fire lately and are both 8-1-1 in their last 10 games while the Bruins are 4-1-5 and hold a six point lead on the Leafs and a seven point lead on the Lightning who have two games in hand on Boston.
Head coach Bruce Cassidy has confirmed Tuukka Rask will start between the pipes and he'll likely go up against Pekka Rinne of the Predators.
Anders Bjork promotion from yesterday is likely to stick and he'll be skating alongside Jake DeBrusk and David Krejci.
Joakim Nordstrom won't be in the lineup as he deals with the flu while Connor Clifton remains out with an upper body injury.
Here's a look at tonight's full projected lineup:
Marchand - Bergeron - Pastrnak
DeBrusk - Krejci - Bjork
Heinen - Coyle - Ritchie
Kuraly - Lindholm - Wagner
Chara - McAvoy
Krug - Carlo
Moore - Grzelcyk
