Bruins in Ottawa for playoff preview

OTTAWA With plenty of interesting line combination to go with, it appeared the Bruins opted for some creative forward lines as Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas relaxed back in Boston. The top line of David Krejci who is wearing the A for the first time this season, Milan Lucic and Tyler Seguin appeared to remain intact while it looks like Adam McQuaid will also get back into the lineup against Ottawa at Scotiabank Place.

It will be Anton Khudobin making his first start for the Boston Bruins with towering goaltender Ben Bishop getting the nod for Ottawa as he attempts to shake off some lingering groin issues.

It still appears there will be some choices made by Bruins coach Claude Julien prior to the puck drop against a Senators team that might just have a few things to prove against a Boston team thats dominated them this season. Here is the projected lineup, but it might be subject to change:

Lucic-Krejci-Seguin
Marchand-Kelly-Peverley
Pouliot-Rolston-Caron
Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Ference-Seidenberg
Zanon-Corvo
Krug-McQuaid

Khudobin
