BRUINS VS. RANGERS I 8 P.M. (NBCSN)
JIM DAVIS/GLOBE STAFF
NEW YORK — Brad Marchand will play tonight for the first time since elbowing the Devils’ Marcus Johansson on Jan. 23. The Bruins went 4-1-0 during Marchand’s five-game suspension.
“I’m not back with them tonight,” joked Marchand about returning to the first line with Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak.
Danton Heinen, Marchand’s fill-in on the No. 1 line, will return to the third unit with Riley Nash and David Backes. Tim Schaller will go back to the fourth line. Frank Vatrano will not play tonight because of a lower-body injury. Vatrano pulled up lame in the second period of last night’s win in Detroit and limped off favoring his left leg.
Kevan Miller (upper body) and Noel Acciari (lower body) remain out.
