BOSTON -- Tim Thomas and Henrik Lundqvist both led the Bruins and Rangers onto the ice respectively for pregame skate and will get the starts in an Eastern Conference heavyweight battle.

Thomas is 4-7-3 with a 2.69 goals against average and .911 save percentage while Lundqvist is 17-5-2 with a 1.51 goals against average and a .947 save percentage with five shutouts in 24 career games vs. the Bs. Looks like a bit of a mismatch on paper. The Bs projected lines are:

Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Lucic-Kelly-Peverley
Pouliot-Krejci-Caron
Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Boychuk
Seidenberg-Corvo
Ference-Seidenberg

Thomas
Rask
