TORONTO – The Bruins will go with a different lineup than their very successful Game 1, but only in the completely expected way. Boston will stay with Rich Peverley as the left wing with Chris Kelly and Jaromir Jagr on the third line, and will install Andrew Ference right back on that middle defensemen pairing with Johnny Boychuk. That means Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg will be back together again as the top shutdown pair, and should get plenty of action against Phil Kessel after he potted the game-winner in a breakaway in Game 2. Tuukka Rask and James Reimer are the starting goaltenders for the Bruins and Maple respectively. Here are the forward combos and defensemen pairings for Game 3 at the Air Canada Centre based on pregame warm-ups:

 

Lucic-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin

Peverley-Kelly-Jagr

Paille-Campbell-Thornton

 

Chara-Seidenberg

Ference-Boychuk

Redden-McQuaid

 

Rask
