What Will the Bruins Lineup Even Look Like After the Latest Wave of Injuries?


The Boston Bruins continue to get ravaged by injuries as the team announced that Brad Marchand and Anders Bjork will not travel with the team for the California road trip.

Boston suffers a critical injury nearly every game at this point so you may be wondering, who is even left in the lineup?

With Marchand sidelined, Frank Vatrano of all people will likely find themselves alongside Pastrnak and Bergeron on the team’s top line.

Vatrano seems to be on his way to another mediocre season, but maybe playing alongside two stars will help him kick things into gear. The 23 year old has two goals in twelve games.

After Vatrano things start to get a bit unclear. Acciari and Beleskey could get bumped up seeing that they’ve been around for awhile, but Acciari still isn’t 100% and Beleskey has struggled to say the least.


Tim Schaller and Sean Kurlay have already seen more playing time because of all the injuries and that is going to continue.

Danton Heinen has been helping fill in at center. The Bruins still have Riley Nash, but he has been ineffective with only three points and a plus minus of -3.

The Bruins also have  Jordan Swarz available. The 26 year old has three assists in six games.

Not all of the temporary rearrangements are clear, but the Bruins have three road ames coming up so we’ll find out soon enough.


The temporarily open roster spots are providing others a chance to breakout while key names heal, but will the Bruins be able to weather the storm?

Do We Really Need All-Star Games Anymore? 

It is safe to say last weekend’s event re-ignited the long-running criticisms of the NBA All-Star Game, which has historically been an event where most will only play at about half of their usual intensity to let their fellow players shine. Five players cracked the 30-point barrier, and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an eye-popping 50 points.
