Bruins Make Cuts, Will Play Regulars Against Rangers



Boston Bruins

After making some expected roster cuts earlier in the day Saturday, the Boston Bruins will once again roll out a roster full of regulars in their fourth preseason game Saturday night at TD Garden.

After making their preseason debuts in a 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday, Patrice Bergeron, Taylor Hall, David Pastrnak, Craig Smith, Brandon Carlo, Derek Forbort, Matt Grzelcyk, and Charlie McAvoy will be back in the lineup for the Boston Bruins Thursday. Veteran Curtis Lazar, Tomas Nosek, and Mike Reilly will also play against the Rangers. Rookies Jack Studnicka, Jesper Froden, Samuel Asselin, and Brady Lyle will also play again in what will likely be their final audition before the next wave of roster cuts.

After rookie goalie Jeremy Swayman went the distance to stop 16 of 18 shots Thursday, veteran goalie Linus Ullmark will get the chance to do the same Saturday against the Rangers.

Here’s what the lineup should look like on Saturday night:

Earlier in the day, the Boston Bruins announced that they had cut the following players:

Callum Booth, Jeremy Brodeur, Jack Dougherty, Ian McKinnon, Andrew Peski, Eduards Tralmaks, and Alex-Olivier Voyer.
