Not only will top fantasy plays like Tuukka Rask, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron, and Taylor Hall be healthy scratches tonight, but a whole host of other Bruins will get the night off in their playoff preview with the Caps. Mike Reilly, Craig Smith, Charlie Coyle, Brandon Carlo, David Krejci, Matt Grzelcyk, Sean Kuraly, Jeremy Lauzon, Charlie McAvoy, and Kevan Miller will all be rested ahead of Boston’s first-round series with the Capitals, which begins on Saturday. Ondrej Kase will also miss this one but is dealing with an upper-body injury and did not make the trip to Washington.
Rookie Jeremy Swayman will get the start between the pipes with Rask sitting out. Swayman has been fantastic this season with a 7-2 record, 1.44 GAA, and .946 save percentage to go along with a pair of shutouts in nine starts. The 22-year-old can be had for $7800 on FanDuel, but it’s tough to back a team with so few regulars in the lineup.
The Bruins are substantial road dogs at the FanDuel Sportsbook with a +152 moneyline, and the under at 5.5 (-144) looks like a good play with so many goal scorers in the press box.
