BOSTON -- Once again the Bruins are giving Anton Khudobin a shot at more playing time after impressing in his last outing against the Buffalo Sabres.

The 26-year-old goaltender shut out the Sabres on Sunday night in impressive fashion, and he’ll get the call again against the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. Khudobin is 3-1 in his last four starts and 7-3 on the season while passing Tuukka Rask with a .925 save percentage on the season.

It’s the second time he’s started back-to-back games this season. The last time he suffered a loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs and was actually pulled in favor of Rask in the third period of a 3-2 loss at Air Canada Centre.  

The rest of the lineup looked the same, aside from Lane MacDermid being missing from the ice with a minor injury suffered recently, and Kaspars Daugavins, as he makes his way to the US with a work visa. Here are the line combos and defense pairings:

Lucic-Krejci-Horton
Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Pandolfo-Peverley-Caron
Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Hamilton
Seidenberg-Boychuk
Ference-Bartkowski
