The Bruins will get the full lineup they envisioned on the ice for the first time this season when they drop the puck against the Dallas Stars at TD Garden. Loui Eriksson and Johnny Boychuk both made it through warm-ups without incident, and will be in the lineup at their normal positions.

Boychuk will rejoin Zdeno Chara as a defensemen pairing after the Chara/Dougie Hamilton duo was on the ice for two goals against in the loss to the New York Islanders over the weekend.

Tuukka Rask and Kari Lehtonen will get the starts for Boston and Dallas respectively in a nice goaltending showdown, and the Bruins will be looking to get off a tough stretch where they’ve lost three of their last four games. Here are the line combinations and defensemen pairings based on pregame warm-up:


Lucic-Krejci-Iginla

Marchand-Bergeron-Eriksson

Soderberg-Kelly-Smith

Paille-Campbell-Thornton


Chara-Boychuk

Seidenberg-Hamilton

Krug-McQuaid


Rask
