MONTREAL – It appears the Bruins will be going with their same lineup for Game 6 at the Bell Centre, and why not after that combination of players took two straight games in Game 4 and Game 5. That means Matt Fraser will be in the lineup on the third line, and Matt Bartkowski will once again suit up as the second pairing defenseman on the left side for the Black and Gold.

For the Montreal Canadiens it appears that man mountain/cigar store Indian defenseman Douglas Murray will be out of the lineup after proving to be an immobile liability in the defensive zone, according to Montreal reports.

Former first round pick Nathan Beaulieu appears to be drawing into the lineup as a mobile, offense-minded third pairing defenseman.

Following practice Dennis Seidenberg stayed out on the ice with Andrej Meszaros and Jordan Caron, and took a little bumping in drills with the two healthy scratches. Seidenberg hasn’t been cleared for contact in a full team practice by the Bruins quite yet, however, and won’t be nearing a return to the lineup until he’s taking contact with the rest of the B’s in full team battle drills.

Here are the line combos and D-pairings based on the Game 6 morning skate:

Lucic-Krejci-Iginla

Marchand-Bergeron-Smith

Fraser-Soderberg-Eriksson

Paille-Campbell-Thornton


Chara-Hamilton

Bartkowski-Boychuk

Krug-Miller


Rask
