Riley Nash skated on Boston's top line at Tuesday's practice.
Nash was flanked by talented wingers Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak after Ryan Spooner and David Krejci got turns there in Monday’s 4-0 loss to Colorado. Patrice Bergeron (lower body) still isn't available to play, so Nash could start Wednesday's game against the Avalanche on first unit. However, he may not be there very long. Oct 11 - 7:52 AM

Riley Nash will probably start the 2017-18 campaign as Boston's fourth-line center.

Nash has played alongside Noel Acciari for most of training camp and he is expected to play a key role on the penalty kill. He hopes to provide more offense this year after he contributed just seven goals and 17 points in 81 games in 2016-17.

Riley Nash took the blame for Ottawa's game-winning goal in overtime on Monday night.

"I think it was pretty selfish of me," Nash said. "You can't make that play. You can't put the refs in that position. Regardless of what happened before that, you just can't do it." He was in the penalty box for roughing when Bobby Ryan produced the winner in Game 3 to give the Senators a 2-1 series lead. Nash has contributed two assists in three postseason games. The Bruins will look to bounce back in Game 4 on Wednesday night.
