The Bruins look to end their losing streak on the road when they take on the Senators on Saturday at Canadian Tire Centre.
The Bruins still will be without Brad Marchand after NHL commissioner Gary Bettman decided against reducing the forward’s suspension. They also may be without Brandon Carlo, who is a game-time decision after suffering a cut on his wrist during Saturday’s practice.
Connor Clifton, who was a healthy scratch Thursday, will replace Derek Forbort in the lineup.
Jack Studnicka will slot back into the lineup and replace Anton Blidh. Jeremy Swayman will be in net for the B’s, opposite of Anton Forsberg.
NESN will air Bruins versus Senators in full, with pregame coverage starting at 6 p.m. ET. Puck drop from Canadian Tire Centre is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.
Here are the projected lines and defensive pairings for Bruins-Senators:
