TORONTO – It looks like it’ll be the same lineups doing battle again for Game 4 at the Air Canada Centre as it was on Monday night for both the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Tuukka Rask and James Reimer led the two teams out for the pregame warm-up, and there were no changes to the B’s forwards and D-men after they secured a solid 5-2 triumph in Game 3.

For the Leafs it appears that Clarke MacArthur could draw in for Toronto in place of Ryan Hamilton as the one change for Randy Carlyle’s bunch, but will otherwise be the same players going up against Boston. The Bruins have outscored the Leafs by an amazing 11-3 during even-strength play, but have allowed four power play goals in their three playoff contests.

So it’s pretty clear where their improvements need to be, and that will be the marching orders if the Bruins are to roll out of Toronto with a victory. Here are the forward combos and D-pairings based on the pregame warm-up:

Lucic-Krejci-Horton
Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Peverley-Kelly-Jagr
Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Seidenberg
Ference-Boychuk
Redden-McQuaid

Rask
