Bruins fans had their prayers answers when they were able to read this morning that Georgii Merkulov has been called up to the Bruins Roster. He practiced with the team on Friday in front of yet another fan filled practice (same as Thursday). While yesterday we wrote about how the fans brought energy to practice, there was another source of energy brought by Merkulov being there.

The practice lines were as followed:
Forwards:
Zacha-Geekie-Pastrnak
Marchand-Coyle-DeBrusk
Van Riemsdyk-Merkulov-Frederic
Heinen-Beecher-Lauko-
Steen
Defense
Lohrei-McAvoy
Lindholm-Carlo
Wotherspoon-Shattenkirk
Grzelcyk-Mitchell
Goalies
Ullmark
Swayman
Merkulov being in the third line with JVR's net front presence could be a nice pairing as JVR is always willing to do much of the dirty work for his team. Merkulov was also slotted on the second power play unit with Lindholm, Debrusk, Coyle and JVR.
Swayman got the start on Wednesday against the Sabres, so it seems the Bruins will be going back to Ullmark against the Devils.
