Gagne to make Bruins debut on fourth line

8 Comments

From CSN New England, ahead of tonight’s Bruins-Red Wings game in Detroit (on NBCSN):

It looks like the fourth line will be the only one tweaked by the Boston Bruins as they head into Joe Louis Arena for the start of a three-game road trip starting in Hockeytown. Newly-signed Simon Gagne will make his debut on the right wing along with Ryan Spooner and Daniel Paille, and give the Bruins an interesting look with the speed and skill element.

Gagne will replace Jordan Caron, who was sent to AHL Providence after Monday’s 2-1 loss to Colorado.

The Bruins, with just four goals in four games, are expected to ice the following lines and D pairings tonight:

Lucic-Krejci-Griffith
Marchand-Bergeron-Smith
Kelly-Soderberg-Eriksson
Paille-Spooner-Gagne

Chara-Hamilton
Bartkowski-Seidenberg
Krug-McQuaid
