The Boston Bruins start a huge week off tonight with the first of five games and the first of three games against the Philadelphia Flyers. 

The two teams are currently battling it out for the fourth and final playoff spot in the MassMutual Division so it'll be three very big games with playoff implications. 

Boston has already been given a bit of a blow with Jaroslav Halak now on the COVID list and Tuukka Rask still dealing with injury. 

Dan Vladar gets the start between the pipes for the Bruins and Jeremy Swayman will play backup. 

Cassidy has been calling out David Pastrnak lately and it hasn't worked so he'll start the game on the second line with David Krejci and Nick Ritchie hoping he can get going. Craig Smith will play with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron on the first. 

Anders Bjork, Jarred Tinordi and Chris Wagner will be tonight's healthy scratches.

63 Brad Marchand - 37 Patrice Bergeron -12 Craig Smith
