BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Bruins are rolling, with wins in four of five heading into their game Saturday in Toronto--and they're also getting healthier and deeper. 

The team acquired defenseman Nick Holden from the Rangers earlier this week, which gives the team at least 9 blue-liners.

Bruce Cassidy admitted it's tough to practice with that many bodies on the back-end, so juggling line-ups will be a little challenging.

"Obviously, with the deadline coming up, we'll make those decisions," he said. "It is difficult to practice with nine guys ... we're definitely going to have to do it for at least the short term and figure out where we're at come Monday."

"Obviously, Kevan Miller is ready to go as well, so we got nine healthy ones as well," he added.

David Krejci scored the go-ahead goal in Edmonton Tuesday after being moved to a line with David Backes and Danton Heinen, but Cassidy said the center will be right back with Ryan Spooner and Jake DeBrusk next game.

"We'll stick with our regular lines and see how it plays out," he said.
