BOSTON – The Bruins will be going with the Daug Man for Game 4 against the Pittsburgh Penguins now that Gregory Campbell is done for the rest of the playoffs with a broken right leg. Claude Julien confirmed the news Friday morning.

Kaspars Daugavins skated on the left side with Rich Peverley and Tyler Seguin on the third line during Boston’s morning skate, and Chris Kelly was placed between Daniel Paille and Shawn Thornton on the highly effective energy line. The changes could allow for the best facsimile to the broken Merlot Line, and might also bring a little more offensive push to the games of Peverley and Seguin. 

Asked if the Daug Man was going to bark tonight, Daugavins said "I hope so."

Otherwise the forward lines were the same, and no additional forwards were added to the Black and Gold morning skate group. Here are the line combos and D-pairings based on Boston’s morning skate:
