Krug, DeBrusk on ice for Bruins morning skate; Johansson and Clifton aren't


The Bruins appeared to be very banged up at the end of a very physical Game 2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, but a couple of days later that may not be the case. Both Torey Krug and Jake DeBrusk took their normal spots at Monday’s morning skate at Scotiabank Arena prior to Game 3 at the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Krug took a massive hit from Jake Muzzin midway through Game 2 that staggered him and knocked him out of the game, and DeBrusk took a cross-check to the face from Nazem Kadri that the Leafs center is now facing a suspension for with the NHL Department of Player Safety. Bruce Cassidy confirmed that both players will suit up and play tonight, illustrating the toughness that’s regularly exhibited during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In other good news, D-man John Moore was on the ice for morning skate and continues to push toward a return sooner rather than later after missing the first few games of the postseason.

Marcus Johansson (illness) and Connor Clifton (undisclosed) were both missing from the line rushes and both Bruins will be out of the lineup for Game 3.

Here are the line combos and D-pairings from Monday morning’s skate prior to a pivotal Game 3 in Toronto:
