David Krejci will play, Carl Soderberg will not. That’s the injury word for tonight’s Boston Bruins season opener vs the Tampa Bay Lightning. Live coverage begins at 6:30PM on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.

Krejci has been dealing with back spasms but will play on the top line. Soderberg injured his ankle in the final pre-season game and will set. Look for Jordan Caron to take his place on the B’s third line.

Looks like Anders Lindback, not former UMaine goalie Ben Bishop, will start in goal for the Lightning. Another former Black Bear Teddy Purcell plays on the TB second line.

Here’s a look at the B’s roster…
