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

Monday's game is a big one for David Krejci


January 16

The NHL-leading Boston Bruins on Monday afternoon will welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to TD Garden for a matinee matchup.

Monday’s clash will mark the second meeting of the season between the Bruins and the Flyers. Boston handily defeated Philadelphia 4-1 at TD Garden back on Nov. 17 thanks in large part to a pair of goals from David Krejci. Round 2 against the Flyers will be a special one for the veteran center, who’s in line to play his 1,000th game with the Black and Gold.

Krejci and company aren’t expected to make any lineup changes coming off of Saturday’s dramatic win over the Maple Leafs. This includes a third consecutive start from Linus Ullmark, who turned in a Save of the Year candidate against Toronto.

Here are the projected lines and defensive pairings for Monday’s Flyers-Bruins tilt:

Brad Marchand–Patrice Bergeron–David Pastrnak
Taylor Hall–David Krejci–Craig Smith
Pavel Zacha–Charlie Coyle–Trent Frederic
Nick Foligno–Tomas Nosek–A.J. Greer

Matt Grzelcyk–Charlie McAvoy
Hampus Lindholm–Brandon Carlo
Derek Forbort–Connor Clifton

Linus Ullmark

James van Riemsdyk–Morgan Frost–Owen Tippett
Joel Farabee–Noah Cates–Travis Konecny
Kevin Hayes–Scott Laughton–Wade Allison
Nicolas Deslauriers–Patrick Brown–Zach MacEwen

Ivan Provorov–Cam York
Travis Sanheim–Tony DeAngelo
Nick Seeler–Ramus Ristolainen
