BOSTON – The Bruins will be missing some size and strength on Saturday afternoon as both Jarome Iginla and Kevan Miller were missing from warm-ups, and are out of the lineup against the Philadelphia Flyers. Instead Loui Eriksson will skate in place of Iginla on the right wing, and Corey Potter makes his second appearance with the Black and Gold in place of the impressive Miller.

Iginla missed the Wednesday night game against Detroit with a lower body injury, and then played a largely unremarkable game against Toronto on Thursday night. Miller has been a mainstay in the B’s lineup, but has been battling normal regular season aches and pains in recent weeks.

Otherwise, it was Tuukka Rask and Ray Emery on the ice first leading the Bruins and Flyers respectively in a rematch of a highly entertaining game last weekend in Philly at the Wells Fargo Center. Otherwise the lineups look the same for the Black and Gold as they look to end a two game losing streak caused by defeats at the hands of the Red Wings and Maple Leafs.

Here are the forward combos and D-pairings based on pregame warm-up:
 
Lucic-Krejci-Eriksson
Marchand-Bergeron-Smith
Kelly-Soderberg-Caron
Paille-Campbell-Thornton
 
Chara-Potter
Krug-Hamilton
Bartkowski-Meszaros
 
Rask
