by

The Bruins will wrap up their three-game, five-day West Coast road trip Sunday night in the Lone Star State.

Boston and the Dallas Stars are set to meet for the second and final time this regular season. The sides last met all the way back on Opening Night in mid-October when the B’s claimed a 3-1 victory at TD Garden.

Oskar Seen is expected to play on Boston’s first line alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. Craig Smith, who’s also seen time on the Bruins’ top line with David Pastrnak on the second, is projected to skate on the visitors’ third line with Jake DeBrusk and Charlie Coyle.

After a solid 30-save performance in Friday night’s win over the Arizona Coyotes, Linus Ullmark will start in between the pipes against the Stars. It will mark the first-year Bruin’s third consecutive start in net for the Black and Gold.

Here are the projected lines and defensive pairings for Sunday’s Bruins-Stars game:
