Young lineup expected tomorrow

The Bruins have concluded teambuilding activities and are returning from Brattleboro, Vt. They will travel to Washington tomorrow and will most likely have a young lineup against the Capitals.

“We may go to Washington tomorrow giving some younger guys another opportunity to be seen,” Claude Julien said during a conference call. “We’ll be giving some of our older players, players that have families, the opportunity to stay at home and have that day.”

That means Tyler Seguin will most likely get shifts at center on Wednesday. Julien said he’d also like to see Blake Wheeler in the middle again. Wheeler was a center for two periods last week against Montreal.

Wednesday’s home game against Washington would feature a lineup closer to the season-opening roster.
