Bost0n Bruins Notes

-The Boston Bruins are just two games into the season, but head coach Jim Montgomery is already mixing and matching the forward lines as they get set to kick off a four-game roadie against the Sharks in San Jose on Thursday night.

“It’s a small sample size, two games,” Jim Montgomery told reporters on Monday after he flip-flopped center Matthew Poitras and Charlie Coyle on the forward lines.

“We’re going on the road. That factors into it a little bit on why. But I haven’t seen a lot of offensive 5-on-5 generation. Again, small sample size. I just think — I trust my eye behind the bench, and then follow it up, and I see it on video, I just want to try something else to get a spark.”

-Linus Ullmark will make his second start of the season eight days after he made his first. Ullmark made 20 saves on 21 shots in a 3-1 season-opening win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 11

San Jose Sharks Notes

-The San Jose Sharks are off to a rough start at 0-2-1 and are allowing 42 shots per game.

– The Sharks are still missing captain Logan Couture who began the season on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

-Goalie Kaapo Kahkenen will start his second game of the season. He allowed four goals on 32 shots in a season-opening 4-1 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Oct. 12.
