5 p.m.: One week from Thursday, the Bruins’ regular season will begin. Before that, though, there’s still some preseason business to take care of, and that continues Thursday night against a former conference rival. The Bruins will take on the Winnipeg Jets twice over the next two nights beginning with Tuesday’s tilt in Winnipeg. The first game of the two-game “series” will be started by goalie Niklas Svedberg. The young netminder is looking to win the backup job, and he could earn some big points in that competition with a stellar showing Thursday. The Bruins will also be showcasing one of their top two lines Thursday night as Patrice Bergeron’s line will be in action. The veteran forward will center what will be the B’s top line Thursday night. Also among regulars, the fourth line will be making an appearance in the first of the two games. Here’s the projected lineup via the team’s official website. Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Loui Eriksson Matt Fraser-Ryan Spooner-Nick Johnson Jordan Caron-Matt Lindblad-Reilly Smith Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton Defensemen: Dennis Seidenberg, Adam McQuaid, Matt Bartkowksi, Dougie Hamilton, Torey Krug and Kevan Miller Starting Goalie: Niklas Svedberg Backup: Chad Johnson Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
