It will be another NHLer-heavy lineup for the Preseason Bruins on Saturday night when they play host to the Rangers at TD Garden.

On the forward front, the roster includes Samuel Asselin, Patrice Bergeron, Trent Frederic, Jesper Froden, Taylor Hall, Karson Kuhlman, Curtis Lazar, Tomas Nosek, David Pastrnak, Zach Senyshyn, Craig Smith, and Jack Studnicka.

Based on the practice lines on Saturday morning, this will mean another game of The Bergeron Line and Studnicka between Hall and Smith, while Tomas Nosek will center a line with Trent Frederic and Karson Kuhlman on the wings.

That will leave the Bruins with a projected fourth line featuring Samuel Asselin and Zach Senyshyn on the wings for Curtis Lazar.

On the backend, the Bruins will go with another night of the Derek Forbort-Charlie McAvoy pairing, keep Brandon Carlo and Mike Reilly together, and put Brady Lyle to the right of Matt Grzelcyk.

In net, Linus Ullmark is expected to get the whole game, and he’ll be backed up by Kyle Keyser.

The Bruins come into tonight’s game with a 2-1-0 record this preseason.
