The Boston Bruins will welcome an old friend to town as Milan Lucic and his Edmonton Oilers come to town. 

The two teams are on different paths as the Bruins will be looking for their third win in a row while the Oilers are looking for their first win of the season. 

Head coach Bruce Cassidy has decided to make a couple of changes to his lineup as Ryan Donato will be scratched and Joakim Nordstrom will make his way into the lineup onto the second line with David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk. 

"No, it's the same deal. Just got to go out and skate hard, play hard, hold on to pucks and just compete." Nordstrom said about rejoining the lineup.



Jaroslav Halak gets his second start of the season, it'll be his home debut. Halak put up a 32 save shutout against Buffalo on October 4th. 

As for Lucic, he has five points in six games against the Bruins in his career and had a goal and an assist in the Oilers opening game of the season.
