BOSTON – The Bruins will be without Matt Bartkowski, Chris Kelly and Daniel Paille for another first round against the Detroit Red Wings as all three players were missing from pregame warm-ups on Sunday afternoon prior to Game 2. Kevan Miller is returning to the ice, and was taking a normal turn with Andrej Meszaros during the rushes prior to the game.

Tuukka Rask and Jimmy Howard will also once again be the starting goaltenders for Game 2 as the Bruins will look to “break through the wall” of the Red Wings forecheck in order to get some pressure on the Detroit defenseman. Here are the forward combos and D-pairings based on the pregame warm-up:
