The impressive young Bruins will get one more chance to make a final impression as the Black and Gold host the Philadelphia Flyers for a late Saturday afternoon final dress rehearsal on the preseason.
Brandon Carlo, Rob O’Gara, Danton Heinen and Austin Czarnik along with veteran camp tryout Christian Ehrhoff will all be in the lineup for the Bruins against the Broad Street Bullies, and will make their final push to crack next week’s official NHL roster. Claude Julien also indicated that Tuukka Rask will get the full 60 minutes between the pipes against the Flyers in a game that will feature pretty much all of Boston’s “A” players getting ready to start the regular season.
“We still have to have a look at certain players, and then hopefully it helps us make that decision that needs to be made,” said Claude Julien, who is looking at a scenario where Carlo, Heinen and Czarnik at the very least could start the year in Boston if things break right for them. “There’s probably room [on the roster] for some young players if they deserved it and earned it, and if we think they can help us. It’s probably all of that stuff, and why not? I think we have to be open to that, and that’s why you see a lot of those young players still here [in camp].”
Here is the game roster for the Bruins planned to take the ice Saturday night against the Flyers at TD Garden: David Backes, Matt Beleskey, Patrice Bergeron, Brandon Carlo, Zdeno Chara, Austin Czarnik, Christian Ehrhoff, Jimmy Hayes, Danton Heinen, David Krejci, Torey Krug, Brad Marchand, Kevan Miller, Dominic Moore, Riley Nash, Rob O’Gara, David Pastrnak, Tuukka Rask, Ryan Spooner and Malcolm Subban.
