Predicting The Bruins' Forward Lines For The Playoffs.

Despite having guys in and out of the lineup due to various injuries and suspensions this season, the Boston Bruins just keep it rolling. 

With 11 games left over about four weeks, everybody hopes it'll give Patrice Bergeron, David Backes, Rick Nash along with defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Zdeno Chara the right amount of time to get healthy. 

Head coach Bruce Cassidy has done a great job of plugging holes left open due to injury and finding chemistry with new lines, so what could a fully healthy lineup look like in four weeks?

Brandon Share-Cohen of The Hockey Writers decided to take a shot at predicting what a healthy Bruins forward lineup would look like. 

Obviously the first line would consist of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, but here's a look at the rest of his ideal lineup:

Jake DeBrusk – David Krejci – Rick Nash
Ryan Donato – Riley Nash – David Backes
Tim Schaller – Sean Kuraly – Noel Acciari

While seeing Tommy Wingels and Danton Heinen healthy scratches isn't the end of the world, it's hard to imagine Brian Gionta not getting a shot in the bottom six.
