WINNIPEG – Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins onto the ice and will look to build on the .923 save percentage that he posted this preseason in his only appearance against the Washington Capitals. The forward lines and defensemen pairings look to be in the same as they were at Thursday morning skate at the MTS Centre, and both Daniel Paille and Adam McQuaid have donned the “A” on their sweater along with Patrice Bergeron.

Bryan Little, Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler will be missing from the Winnipeg lineup along with defenseman Zach Bogosian, so the Bruins will have to wait until the rematch Friday nighit to really test their defense.

Here are the line combos and D-pairings based on the morning skate:

Marchand-Bergeron-Eriksson
Fraser-Spooner-Johnson
Caron-Lindblad-Smith
Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Seidenberg-McQuaid
Bartkowksi-Hamilton
Krug-Miller

Svedberg
Johnson
