BOSTON – The Bruins are getting closer to their full lineup with each passing day, and it looks like they’ve got another piece in Daniel Paille. Paille and Brad Marchand both skated in pregame warm-ups, and appeared to be in the lineup for Game 1 of the second round series against the Montreal Canadiens.
It also looks like Justin Florek will stay in the lineup and man the B’s third line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson that had so much success in the first round against the Detroit Red Wings. Otherwise it’ll be the same group for the Bruins that ended the first round with a Saturday win against the Detroit Red Wings last weekend.
Tuukka Rask and Carey Price will be the starting goaltenders for the Bruins and Canadiens respectively, and Rask will be looking for his first win against the hated Habs after going 0-4-3 in his first seven decisions at TD Garden.
The forward combos and defense pairings will look a little like this against the Canadiens:
