BOSTON – The Bruins were a little loose and a little relaxed during their morning skate, and perhaps that’s the swagger of a team that knows they’re playing their best hockey of the season. It might also be a team that’s loosened the grip on their intensity ever-so-slightly as they were slapping backs and cracking jokes after Friday’s morning skate prior to Game 4 at the TD Garden.

We’ll certainly find out quickly as the Bruins get ready to take the ice after fielding the same lineup for pregame warm-up as they did for morning skate. Kaspars Daugavins is in for Gregory Campbell, and the bottom six forward groups have been shuffled into new combinations as a result.

Here are the forward combos and D-pairings based on pregame warm-ups:

 

Lucic-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Bergeron-Jagr

Daugavins-Peverley-Seguin

Paille-Kelly-Thornton

 

Chara-Seidenberg

Ference-Boychuk

Krug-McQuaid

 

Rask
