6:30 p.m.: The Boston Bruins will play the New York Islanders on Friday night in their final road preseason game.

The matchup will take place in Bridgeport, Conn., which is where the Islanders’ AHL affiliate plays its games.

A few Bruins will be making their preseason debuts. Defenseman Torey Krug and right winger Reilly Smith are seeing their first game action after missing the first four preseason games due to their contract situation. Both players signed one-year contracts on Monday and didn’t play in Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to the Islanders.

The other player making his debut is 2014 first-round draft pick David Pastrnak. The highly skilled right winger missed the first five preseason games because of a shoulder injury suffered on the third day of training camp. He’s been medically cleared and will be in the lineup Friday night.

Here’s the travel roster for Friday’s game.

FORWARDS: Jordan Caron, Craig Cunningham, Justin Florek, Seth Griffith, Chris Kelly, Alexander Khokhlachev, Milan Lucic, Dan Paille, David Pastrnak, Reilly Smith, Carl Soderberg, Ryan Spooner

DEFENSEMEN: Matt Bartkowski, Chris Breen, Torey Krug, Kevan Miller, Dennis Seidenberg, Zach Trotman, David Warsofsky

GOALTENDERS: Malcolm Subban, Niklas Svedberg
