Ullmark, Nosek Set To Make Bruins Debuts Against Rangers Tuesday

Boston Bruins

Two of the notable 2021 free agent signings for the Boston Bruins will play their first game in a Bruins uniform on Tuesday night in New York against the Rangers.

Goalie Linus Ullmark is slated to get his first start for the Boston Bruins and forward Tomas Nosek will be one of 13 forwards in the Bruins lineup at Madison Square Garden. Nosek, along with Ullmark, Nick Foligno, Erik Haula, and Derek Forbort were part of the free-agent splash Don Sweeney made on July 28, the first day of free agency. After Tuesday, Forbort and Foligno will be the only ones of that quintet yet to see game action for the Bruins. Haula played and scored a goal in the 3-2 win in the preseason opener against the Washington Capitals on Sunday.

On Monday, Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy told the media that, unlike in years past and with no Tuukka Rask in the lineup, there will be no clear-cut or designated starter between the pipes for the Bruins when their regular season kicks off on October 16 against the Dallas Stars. The plan, for now, is to split the starts between Ullmark and rookie Jeremy Swayman and see who, if either of them, can seize the starter’s role.

“Less so than other years because there was a defined No. 1: Tuukka, right?”, Cassidy replied when asked if the goalie schedule was planned out yet. “So we would schedule his 50-54-ish (games) kind of the last couple years and go through the whole calendar. I’m not sure we’ll do that this year in terms of the same way. I think it’ll be more month-to-month, performance-driven.”

2021 first-round pick Fabian Lysell will be in the lineup for a second-straight game after an impressive debut on Sunday.

Here’s the rest of Tuesday night’s roster for the Boston Bruins:

Forwards: Samuel Asselin, Anton Blidh, Matt Filipe, Trent Frederic, Jesper Froden, Cam Hughes, Joona Koppanen, Curtis Lazar, Fabian Lysell, Tomas Nosek, Zach Senyshyn, Oskar Steen, and Jack Studnicka

Defensemen: Jack Ahcan, Tyler Lewington, Brady Lyle, John Moore, Mike Reilly, Urho Vaakanainen, and Nick Wolff

Goaltenders: Jeremy Brodeur, Kyle Keyser and Linus Ullmark

Without Jack Eichel who wants to be a Bruin I don’t believe the Bruins will be a contender or finalist for the Cup.

Agree with you what a motley lineup Forbort couldn’t stop my teenage niece one on one, Foligno will be injured for most of the season, Huala will start off quickly and fade Nosek I don’t think will accomplish much. Ullmark I’m kind of excited about. the bruins need to get Eichel. In a couple of years they’ll have nothing. Patrice will be retired Krecji already gone don’t hold your breath waiting for him to come back if you expected Coyle and Studnicka to fill in the cracks forget it.

Senyshyn couldn’t score on the over 60 greatest mass bridge club. One of the worst draft picks ever, this will be Zacks final season in a b’s jersey.
