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

Boston on Wednesday will welcome the return of second-line winger Marcus Johansson and second-pairing defenseman Torey Krug for its tilt at TD Garden against the New York Rangers.

Krug, who will skate alongside Brandon Carlo and likely will return to his role on the top power-play unit, has been out since suffering a concussion against the Columbus Blue Jackets on March 12.

Despite Krug coming back, both Connor Clifton and Steven Kampfer will remain in action on the blue line since John Moore now is out .

Jaroslav Halak will start in goal for the Bruins, while Henrik Lundqvist is expected to go for New York.
