Berkshire Bank Hockey Night In New England: Projected Bruins-Senators Lineups

1,720

The Boston Bruins look to stay hot Monday night when they face the Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre.

This game is looking more and more like a possible first-round playoff matchup, so Monday’s result could help determine home-ice advantage in a best-of-seven series between the teams. The Senators are two points up on the Bruins with two games in hand and own a 4-1-0 record against Boston over the past two seasons, including a 3-1 win in Ottawa earlier this season.

The Bruins are coming off a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday that moved their record to 8-2-0 under interim head coach Bruce Cassidy.

Here are Monday’s projected lineups for both teams.

BOSTON BRUINS (34-25-6)

Peter Cehlarik-David Krejci-David Pastrnak

During the 2016-2017 regular season, Berkshire Bank Foundation will donate $100 for each Bruins assist to three local non-profit organizations. Click here to see official rules.

As of March 23, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $9,900 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.



Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
