Trent Frederic will be in the Boston Bruins lineup Tuesday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but it’ll be at the expense of Jake DeBrusk.
The writing was on the wall following Monday’s practice, but DeBrusk is a healthy scratch, with Frederic going back in. Charlie Coyle will bump over to the third-line right wing opposite Nick Ritchie, with Sean Kuraly moving up to center them.
Curtis Lazar will continue centering the fourth line, with Wagner on his right and Frederic on his left.
Kevan Miller got a maintenance day Monday, but the plan is for him to play Tuesday with Mike Reilly. Connor Clifton will draw into the third pairing right side role with Jeremy Lauzon, bumping Steven Kampfer out of the lineup.
Tuukka Rask will be in net for the Bruins, with Jaroslav Halak backing up.
Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. ET on NESN+, with pregame beginning at 6 p.m.
Here are the projected lineups for both teams.
