BOSTON -- The Bruins will have a new look to their lines on Sunday afternoon with Milan Lucic and Dougie Hamilton inserted back into the lineup, and Tuukka Rask back between the pipes after he was called out by his head coach on Saturday afternoon.
Nathan Horton (upper body) and Adam McQuaid (lower body) will both be out of the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Florida Panthers with injuries that have them “day to day”, and both Lucic and Hamilton will replace them.
The Bruins will be looking to snap a season-worst four game losing streak that has included signs they’re about ready to snap out of the doldrums, but the task is simple on Sunday.
“We need to score more goals. We need to get to the net more, and we need to finish off more plays,” said Claude Julien. “We need to stop making goaltenders look so good.”
Here is the forward combinations and defense pairings based on pregame warm-up:
