Boston Bruins' head coach Bruce Cassidy announced great news to the fans this morning. He confirmed that 31-year-old centerman David Krejci will be back in the lineup tonight, against the Ottawa Senators. Anders Bjork will be a healthy scratch to make a spot for him.
Krejci suffered an undisclosed upper-body injury against the New York Rangers, on December 16.
Here are the team's projected lines and defense pairings for tonight's game:
Marchand - Bergeron - Pastrnak
DeBrusk - Krejci - Spooner
Heinen - Nash - Backes
Schaller - Kuraly- Acciari
Chara - McAvoy
Krug - Carlo
Grzelcyk - Miller
Boston won seven of their last 10 games, while Ottawa have only won three.
