In a surprising turn of events, Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery appears to be shaking up the lineup ahead of Game 3 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. While nothing is officially confirmed, there are strong indications that changes are on the horizon.

Reports suggest that defensemen Parker Wotherspoon and Mason Lohrei are set to make their way into the lineup for the Bruins tonight. This move comes as a shock to many fans but they are excited to see what he can bring to the lineup.

Take everything with a grain of salt for now, but it looks like both Lohrei and Wotherspoon are in and Grzelcyk out




One notable change is the potential absence of Matt Grzelcyk from the lineup. Grzelcyk, a key defenseman for the Bruins, but has been inconsistent all year long, and it seems he may be sidelined for Game 3.

Instead, Mason Lohrei has been spotted practicing alongside star defenseman Charlie McAvoy on the first defensive pairing.

AM pairs:

Lohrei-McAvoy
Lindholm-Carlo
Wotherspoon-Shattenkirk
Forbort-Grzelcyk


Meanwhile, Parker Wotherspoon is poised to step into the lineup, potentially filling the void left by the injured Andrew Peeke. Peeke's absence due to injury adds another layer of challenge for the Bruins, as they navigate through a pivotal moment in the series.

The Bruins find themselves tied 1-1 with the Maple Leafs in the series, making Game 3 a crucial opportunity to gain an edge. With the series evenly poised, every decision matters, and Coach Montgomery's bold lineup changes reflect the team's determination to secure a victory tonight.

As the Bruins aim to upset the Maple Leafs and claim a 2-1 series lead, all eyes will be on the newcomers, Lohrei and Wotherspoon, to make an impact on the ice. Their performance tonight could prove pivotal in shaping the outcome of the series and determining the Bruins' playoff fate.
