Jagr to play with Seguin and Marchand

Jaromir Jagr will make his Boston debut on a line with Tyler Seguin in the middle and Brad Marchand on the left side when the Bruins host the Devils tonight at TD Garden.

Jagr will, in a sense, replace Patrice Bergeron (out indefinitely with a concussion), except it will be Seguin moving from the wing to take over Bergeron’s spot at center.

Per CSNNE.com, the Bruins’ other top line remains David Krejci centering Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton.

Bergeron’s injury provides an easy way to slot Jagr into the top six. If Bergeron had been healthy, it would’ve been interesting to see how coach Claude Julien deployed his lines, particularly considering Horton has scored a goal in each of his last four games, with Lucic registering four assists in his last three games.

Remember that much of the Bruins’ push to add a scoring winger was owed to the struggles of Horton and Lucic.

Obviously, the B’s are hopeful an extra top-six forward is a problem they’ll have shortly.

Tuukka Rask is expected to start in goal for Boston.

PS — Seguin was born on Jan. 31, 1992. At that point, Jagr had already played a season and a half with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

PPS — Marchand was born on May 11, 1988.
