The Bruins will have one new face in their lineup after steady veteran Wade Redden suffered an injury in the overtime thriller on Wednesday night. Matt Bartkowski will step in to make his NHL Stanley Cup playoff debut in place of Redden, and will slide right into a defenseman pairing spot with Adam McQuaid. Other than that the Bruins lineup will be exactly the same as it was in Game 4 when they bested the Maple Leafs in a war of wills at the Air Canada Centre to snap up a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Tuukka Rask and James Reimer will get the starts for the Bruins and the Leafs respectively, and John Michael-Liles will step in for the injured Mark Fraser. Here are the line combos and D-pairings based on pregame warm-up:
 
Lucic-Krejci-Horton
Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Peverley-Kelly-Jagr
Paille-Campbell-Thornton
 
Chara-Seidenberg
Ference-Boychuk
Bartkowski-McQuaid
 
Rask
