Bruins Will Miss Krug's Presence

B's will be without blue liner as they try to keep season alive in Tampa

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

TAMPA - The Bruins, down 3-1 in their second-round tilt with the Lightning, received some more bad news on Saturday afternoon. Upon their arrival in Tampa, the team announced that defenseman Torey Krug will not play in the remainder of the series after leaving Friday night's loss with a lower-body injury, the result of an awkward slam into the end boards.

Cassidy: 'We'll probably tinker' with Game 4 Lineup

Changes could be coming after back-to-back losses

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - It appears that the Bruins could use a bit of a spark.

After dropping two straight games to fall into a 2-1 series hole in this best-of-seven, second-round series with Tampa Bay, coach Bruce Cassidy hinted at potential lineup changes for Friday night's Game 4.

It was difficult, however, to decipher what any tweaks may look like during Thursday's practice at Warrior Ice Arena with Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk both missing the session for maintenance days.

Pastrnak Providing a Helping Hand

Winger dished out four assists to highlight top line's dominating Game 1

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

TAMPA - David Pastrnak has put together back-to-back 30-goal campaigns.

His 35 tallies during the regular season paced the Bruins. And he's added five more in just eight games this postseason.

But it's his playmaking ability that has truly risen to the occasion. The 21-year-old winger is leading the NHL with 12 assists during the playoffs, including the four helpers he dished out during Boston's 6-2 victory over the Lightning in Game 1 of their second-round series on Saturday.

Fourth Line Was Once Again A Sparkplug

Trio of Schaller, Kuraly, Acciari combined for two goals in Game 4 loss

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - You probably wouldn't have an argument from many around the Bruins if you presented the opinion that the team's fourth line has been its best and most consistent during their opening round series with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The trio of Tim Schaller, Sean Kuraly, and Noel Acciari are relied upon to bring dependability and energy each time they hit the ice. They have done that and then some all season long, adding a bit of offensive flare - they combined for 28 goals in the regular season - from a portion of the lineup traditionally known more for its grit and intensity.

Bruins Battled Through Without Bergeron

Center (upper-body) not ruled out for Game 5

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - What happened to the Bruins on Thursday night was nothing new.

Playing a game minus one of their top players has become commonplace this season. And Boston has become particularly familiar with being down its No. 1 center.

Patrice Bergeron missed 18 games during the regular season due to injury, including 13 late in the year as he recovered from a fracture in his right foot. Nevertheless, Boston managed to post an 11-5-2 record without their MVP-caliber pivot.

Grzelcyk's 'Got A Good Chance to Play' in Game 4

Rookie blue liner sat out Game 3 with a lower-body injury

by Mark Garbino @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BostonBruins.com - Through three games of the Bruins' first-round series with the Toronto Maple Leafs, one of the key factors in each contest has been the teams' ability to transition through the neutral zone. This is an area that Boston struggled with at times in Game 3, during which they were without rookie defenseman Matt Grzelcyk, who was sidelined with a lower-body injury.

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

Donato a possibility to slide into lineup

by Mark Garbino @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins saw the return of a familiar face Friday afternoon at Warrior Ice Arena, with forward Riley Nash joining the team for his first full practice since taking a puck to the side of the head on March 31.

"I feel good," said Nash. "It's nice to get back out there with the guys and actually feel like you're a part of the team again. Today was a good day."
