TORONTO – The Bruins had a full morning skate at the Air Canada Centre in preparation for Game 4, and it appears they’ll be going with the exact same lineup for Wednesday night. With the chance to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series staring them in the face before they return back to Boston, it seems like the perfect time to stick with exactly what’s been working.

“We expect [desperation] every game," said Andrew Ference. "We all know numbers, and who has won how many games [up 3-1] and stuff like that. But if you go in and expect a different opponent every night, then your head isn’t in the right place. You have to expect the best out of your team, and do the same from the other team. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the first or the seventh game. That’s the approach that we have to take.”

Here are the line combos and D-pairings expected for Game 4 based on the morning skate in Toronto. Tuukka Rask and James Reimer are again expected to be in goal for the Bruins and Maple Leafs, respectively.
