WILMINGTON -- The Bruins got back to work on Monday at Ristuccia Arena after a Sunday off following the Florida sweep of the Panthers and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

All B’s players were on the ice for the session, and the lines and defense pairings were exactly the same following back-to-back wins in the Sunshine State. That means Brad Marchand is still with Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg on the third line, and Reilly Smith is still going strong with points in four straight games skating with Patrice Bergeron and Loui Eriksson.

It appeared the Bruins were working on getting their point shots through traffic along with elevating on chances close to the net during practice with a few off days preceding a Wednesday night tilt on the road against the Buffalo Sabres. Here are the line combos and D-pairings from practice:
 
Lucic-Krejci-Iginla
Smith-Bergeron-Eriksson
Caron/Soderberg-Kelly-Marchand
Paille-Campbell-Thornton
 
Chara-Boychuk
Seidenberg-Hamilton
Krug-McQuaid
Bartkowski
 
Rask
Johnson
