Berkshire Bank Hockey Night In New England: Projected Bruins-Flyers Lines, Pairings

The Boston Bruins aim for back-to-back wins Thursday night when they welcome the rival Philadelphia Flyers to TD Garden.

Boston snapped a three-game losing streak Tuesday night in Ottawa, where David Pastrnak’s four points (two goals, two assists) paved the way for a convincing 4-1 win for the B’s.

The Bruins are expected to start Jaroslav Halak in net against the Flyers. The veteran backup goalie still hasn’t lost in regulation. He owns a 2-0-2 record with a 1.74 goals against average and a .933 save percentage.

Jeremy Lauzon was called up to the Bruins from Providence on Thursday on an emergency basis. The 21-year-old defenseman could make his NHL debut versus the Flyers on the third pairing alongside Steven Kampfer. Lauzon was a second-round pick by Boston in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Here are the projected Bruins-Flyers lines and pairings for Thursday’s game.
