The Boston Bruins host the Tampa Bay Lightning tomorrow night for a huge Atlantic Division matchup. 

The Bruins however might be without their second line center for the game. 

David Krejci was forced to leave Monday's game and didn't return, while he hit the ice for practice today, he didn't participate in any line drills. 

Charlie Coyle centered a second line featuring Jake DeBrusk and Brett Ritchie while Par Lindholm centered a third line that featured Karson Kuhlman on the right side and Danton Heinen and David Backes rotating on the left side. 

After practice, head coach Bruce Cassidy gave a brief update on Krejci. 

"He's nursing an upper body injury, so he skated half of practice. Tomorrow we'll see how he is. We'll rule him as day-to-day and I'm not going to rule him out [against the Lightning] and I won't say he's definitely in," 

Here's the lineup that was featured at today's practice:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David PastrnakJake DeBrusk  - Charlie Coyle  - Brett RitchieDanton Heinen/David Backes - Par Lindholm - Karson KuhlmanJoakim Nordstrom - Sean Kuraly - Chris Wagner
