Bergeron (lower-body) will travel to Toronto for Saturday's game.

Bergeron played 21:25 TOI in the Bruins shootout loss to the Lightning on Thursday, so he must have played through a lower-body issue. The Bruins No.1 centre will accompany the team to Toronto and anticipates playing against the Maple Leafs. He has had a terrific start to the season, scoring two goals with five assists (seven points) in seven games.

Krejci (upper-body) will not play Thursday vs. the Lightning.

Krejci was hurt in Monday’s game against the Ducks and will miss Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury. Par Lindholm will draw into the lineup to replace Krejci and Charlie Coyle will move up to the second line. Krejci is day-to-day.

Krejci (upper-body) missed Wednesday’s practice but has not been ruled out of Thursday’s game.

Krejci left Monday’s game against the Ducks after playing just 4:43 TOI and did not return. He wasn’t on the ice for Wednesday’s session but head coach Bruce Cassidy believes there’s still a chance that he suits up vs. the Lightning. Charlie Coyle will move up to the second line if Krejci is unavailable.

Clifton will be a healthy scratch on Monday.

Clifton has no points while playing 15:30 ATOI in the first five games of the season and will be replaced by Steve Kampfer, who is making his season debut. “Cliffy’s played well, but a message that nothing is guaranteed,” is what head coach Bruce Cassidy had to say about scratching the rookie defenseman.

Halak will start Monday vs. the Ducks.

Halak allowed three goals on 35 shots in the Bruins loss in Colorado last Thursday. Halak has gone 1-1-0 with a 1.52 GAA and .957 SV% in his first two starts and the Bruins goalie rotation will continue today vs. the Ducks. Anaheim has started the season at 4-1-0 but are averaging just 2.20 goals per game, so don’t hesitate to start Halak on Monday.

Rask will start against the Devils on Saturday.

Rask allowed three goals on 34 shots in the Bruins win in Vegas on Tuesday. Rask has opened the season with back-to-back wins, stopping 59 of the 63 shots (.937 SV%) that he has faced. Jaroslav Halak has played well too, but the Bruins will come back to Rask vs. a Devils team that has stumbled out of the gate.

Halak will start Thursday in Colorado.

Halak stopped all 35 shots that he faced in the Bruins shutout win in Arizona last Saturday. It was an outstanding start to the season for the veteran backup, who draws a tough matchup in Colorado tonight. Halak is 9-8-3 in his last 20 road starts dating back to last season and gave up seven goals on 61 shots (.885 SV%) in two starts vs. the Avalanche last season.

Rask will start Tuesday in Vegas.

Rask stopped 28 of 29 shots in the Flames win in Dallas on opening night. Jaroslav Halak started Saturday in Arizona, but Rask will go tonight in Vegas. The veteran was 12-7-3 with a 2.65 GAA and 912 SV% on the road last year but draws a terrible matchup tonight. The Golden Knights dominated the Sharks in their first two games of the season, averaging 4.50 goals for/per game on the young season.

Halak leads the Bruins onto the ice for warmups.

Halak had a great start to the 2018-19 season but faded a little bit down the stretch. Still, he put together a 22-11-4 season while posting a 2.34 GAA and .922 SV% (both ranked inside the top-10). With the Bruins looking to limit Tuukka Rask’s workload, Halak could conceivably start 35-plus games again in 2019-20, making him one of the best backups to own in fantasy. He’s a solid spot-start in Arizona, who got off to a slow start on Thursday.
