Coach Jim Montgomery has unveiled the lineup for the Boston Bruins' second preseason match, setting the stage for some exciting action. Following an impressive 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers, courtesy of Brandon Bussi's stellar goalkeeping, anticipation is running high.

The return of Milan Lucic to the Bruins' jersey is a moment of eager anticipation for fans since his one-year deal was inked. Alongside him, emerging talents like John Beecher, Jayson Megna, Ian Mitchell, Alex Chiasson, Danton Heinen, Jakub Lauko, and Jesper Boqvist will grace the ice.

This game offers a prime opportunity for numerous prospects to shine, including John Faranacci, Trevor Kuntar, Georgii Merkulov, Luke Toporowski, Oskar Steen, and Marc McLaughlin. Each carries their own unique story and potential.

On the defensive front, veterans Brandon Carlo and Matt Grzelcyk lead the charge, joined by the promising Mason Lohrei. Additionally, prospects Frederic Brunet, Ryan Mast, and Jackson Edward complete the roster, providing fans a glimpse into the future.

Guarding the net will be Michael DiPietro and Kyle Keyser, allowing the Bruins to assess their depth in goaltending after Bussi's impressive performance.

The Buffalo Sabres boast their own standout players, including Tage Thompson, Rasmus Dahlin, Alex Tuch, and Jeff Skinner. Thompson's development as a power forward stands out, and Dahlin, fresh off a fantastic season, partners with former Bruin Connor Clifton.

In goal, Devon Levi aims to secure the top goalie spot for the Sabres this season, making his performance a pivotal factor for the team.

With a blend of experienced players and emerging talents on both sides, this preseason matchup promises excitement and a glimpse into the NHL's future.
