Boston Bruins Lineup For First Preseason Game Tonight

The Boston Bruins will officially play their first game of the 2022-2023 NHL season tonight.

The Bruins will hit the road for their first game as they travel to Wells Fargo Arena to take on the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at 7 PM EST. Newly hired head coach Jim Montgomery will announce the official lineup following the team’s pre-game skate but based on the line rushes over the first couple of days at practice, expect the lineups to look as such:

Foligno – Beecher – DeBrusk
Greer – Studnicka – Lysell
Wagner – Nosek – Steen
Lauko – Kopppanen – Lettieri
Tralmaks

Zboril – Carrick
Ahcan – Didier
Renouf – Wissmann
Wolff

Kinkaid
Keyser
Brassard

Who to Keep an Eye On

There are a few names that will be taking the ice tonight that fans should keep an eye on. Johnny Beecher, Fabian Lysell, Jack Studnicka, Jakub Zboril, and Jack Ahcan will all look to leave their mark on tonight’s game.

While Zboril is a lock to make the roster out of training camp, he is looking to showcase the talent he flashed last season before his ACL tear. He will also be trying to prove to head coach Jim Montgomery he belongs in the Bruins’ top four to start the season, as well as staying in the lineup once the Bruins defense is fully healthy come December.

Beecher will get the chance to anchor the top line as he will be paired with Jake DeBrusk and veteran Nick Foligno. Having an offensive talent like DeBrusk, who has the speed to burn opposing players, should benefit Beecher as it will open up his offensive game. Beecher is fighting for the fourth-line center spot, so building chemistry with Foligno early on, who was one of the Bruins fourth line wingers last season, could go a long way in helping Beecher’s chances of making the roster.

Lysell will get the opportunity early on to showcase his elite skillset as he will share a line with another Bruins prospect trying to crack the roster as well. Studnicka should benefit from playing with a guy like Lysell as it will open up the offense for him as all eyes will be on the Bruins’ top prospect.

Ahcan made a few appearances in Boston last year as he filled in due to injuries. Ahcan will be looking to prove he is ready for more playing time this season as he tries to lock in the Bruins’ seventh defenseman spot early in the season while Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk are on the mend.

Bruins’ Defensive Prospect Becoming A Workhorse

The Boston Bruins have a long line of great defensemen in their history and one of the league’s top pairs in Charlie McAvoy and Hampus Lindholm. But defensive prospects aren’t quite as plentiful for Boston, especially minor leaguers and college players who are ready to take the next step. This is why the team is […]
