The Boston Bruins are making a number of notable changes to their lineup on Saturday.

Prior to the Bruins facing off against the Canucks, Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery spoke to reporters and confirmed that he would be swapping 4 players in his lineup while also making additional modifications to his current lines.

When it comes to players coming out of the lineup, both forward Jakub Lauko and goaltender Linus Ullmark are expected to get the night off with forward Justin Brazeau set to come in to replace Lauko and with goaltender Jeremy Swayman getting the net in lieu of Ullmark.

Another important factor mentioned by the Bruins head coach is the potential absence of Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk whom Montgomery described as a game time decision. Montgomery does not expect the team will be able to make a call on whether or not Grzelcyk will play tonight until he goes through warmups.

Montgomery also confirmed he would shake up his forward lines, and here is how that should look based on Montgomery's comments prior to the game:
