BOSTON -- The Bruins got back on the ice for practice at TD Garden on Monday morning in their second off day prior to Games 3 and 4 vs. the Montreal Canadiens in the belly of the beast at the Bell Centre.

Daniel Paille was once again skating on the left wing with the third line, and Jordan Caron and Justin Florek were trading shifts during the skating session. Paille rewarded coach Claude Julien for the line promotion by scoring Boston's first goal in the first period of Game 2 on Saturday afternoon.

Likewise Andrej Meszaros appeared to be the defenseman that will be getting the call once again in Montreal in place of Matt Bartkowski, who fell out of favor after a tough Game 1 performance.

Otherwise it was the same group with Chris Kelly and Corey Potter missing from the frozen sheet, and Dennis Seidenberg taking part in the non-contact portions of practice.
Here are the line combos and D-pairings based on Monday's practice:

Lucic-Krejci-Iginla
Marchand-Bergeron-Smith
Paille-Soderberg-Eriksson
Caron/Florek-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Hamilton
Meszaros-Boychuk
Krug-Miller
Bartkowski

Rask
Johnson
