Montgomery Shakes Up Lineup Following New Additions

The Boston Bruins are set to take on the Vancouver Canucks tonight at 7 pm on the road. This will be the first opportunity for fans to see newly acquired players Dmitry Orlov and Garnet Hathaway in the lineup. It was pretty clear the role Hathaway would fill as he was brought in to address a need on the fourth line. The real question was surrounding where Orlov would slide in on defense, as he is more than capable of slotting into the top four. As the Bruins prepare for tonight’s game, we finally found out who got bumped to the bench. Connor Clifton appears to be the odd man out on the Bruins’ blue line. While this is just the first game for Orlov, there is no telling how often this will be the case moving forward, as head coach Jim Montgomery now has options to keep his players fresh down the stretch without having to worry.
