New York Islanders - Training Camp 2011
Speculation about Bruins Lines

Last night, in their first exhibition game of the 2011-12 preseason, the Boston Bruins were downed 2-1 in overtime to Calgary. Heading back to Boston for their first game since winning the Stanley Cup, the coaching staff will likely want a fresh set of legs when they face the Islanders on Friday night.

Purely speculation after some research, here is a reasonable guess for tomorrow’s lineup in Boston.

After releasing six players from camp early yesterday afternoon, the Bruins have cut their roster to 27 forwards, 17 defensemen and four goaltenders.

Forwards
Jamie Arniel, Patrice Bergeron, Gregory Campbell, Carter Camper, Jordan Caron, Chris Clark, Craig Cunningham, Zach Hamill, Josh Hennessy, Nathan Horton, Chris Kelly, Alexander Khokhlachev, Jared Knight, David Krejci, Milan Lucic, Lane MacDermid, Kirk MacDonald, Brad Marchand, Daniel Paille, Rich Peverley, Benoit Pouliot, Max Sauve, Tyler Seguin, Ryan Spooner, Jamie Tardif, Shawn Thornton, Trent Whitfield

Defensemen
Matt Bartkowski, Andrew Bodnarchuk, Johnny Boychuk, Ryan Button, Marc Cantin, Zdeno Chara, Colby Cohen, Joe Corvo, Andrew Ference, Dougie Hamilton, Steven Kampfer, Nathan McIver, Zach McKelvie, Adam McQuaid, Kevan Miller, Dennis Seidenberg, David Warsofsky

Goaltenders
Michael Hutchinson, Anton Khudobin, Tuukka Rask, Tim Thomas

Last night’s roster in Ottawa was as follows:

Forwards
Pouliot-Bergeron-Tardif
Caron-Seguin-Arniel
MacDermid-Kelly-Thornton
Sauve-Spooner-Clark

Defensemen
Warsofsky-Hamilton
Bartkowski-McQuaid
Ference-Cohen

Goaltenders
Rask
Khudobin

If Boston decides to sit the players who played in Ottawa to go with fresh legs, and through a process of elimination, this is who could be suiting up for Boston in tomorrow’s exhibition:

Forwards
Campbell
Camper
Cunningham
Hamill
Hennessy
Horton
Khokhlachev
Knight
Krejci
Lucic
MacDonald
Marchand
Paille
Peverley
Whitfield
Defensemen
Bodnarchuk
Boychuk
Button
Canton
Chara
Corvo
Kampfer
McIver
Mckelvie
Miller
Seidenberg

Goaltenders
Thomas
Hutchinson
