Those who wished to see Ryan Donato in the Bruins lineup against the Toronto Maple Leafs may get their wish – and Bruce Cassidy may not have a choice.
Donato skated at left wing with the third line on Friday as the Bruins get ready for Game 2 on Saturday at TD Garden. Regular third-line left winger Danton Heinen slid down to the fourth line to play right wing with Sean Kuraly and Tim Schaller.
#NHLBruins practice lines:— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) April 13, 2018
Marchand - Bergeron - Pastrnak
DeBrusk - Krejci - Rick Nash
Donato - Acciari - Backes
Schaller - Kuraly - Heinen
Gionta - Riley Nash
Chara - McAvoy
Krug - Miller
Grzelcyk - McQuaid
Riley Nash skated, but in a red non-contact jersey. He told reporters after practice that he suffered concussion-like symptoms in addition to his head laceration, which could keep him out for Game 2. Cassidy described him as “doubtful.”
Wingels, meanwhile, continues to be evaluated and Cassidy considers him “questionable” for the next game.
There may be no further clarity on the Bruins’ Game 2 lineup until pregame warmups at TD Garden.
