WILMINGTON, Mass. After the Brad Marchand-less Bruins registered a come-from-behind victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night, and the entire team was on the ice Wednesday morning for a full practice.
The line combinations remained the same for the Bruins, and it appears itll be the exact same lineup against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night as it was Tuesday. Claude Julien confirmed that the Bruins are likely to recall an extra forward for the four-game road trip through the NHLs sunshine belt followed by another road game against the Devils.
The most likely choice would be Jordan Caron after his recent demotion to Providence, but the Bs coach said it could depend on which forward is wielding the hottest hand for the AHL club. The transaction isn't likely to take place until Friday leading up to this weekend's road tilt against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Here are the line combos from practice on Wednesday:

First up, President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski talks about "winning the winter", and filling the leadership void left by David Ortiz.
Also, Dombrowski's two biggest acquisitions during his tenure with Boston , Chris Sale and David Price, discuss expectations for the rotation, and getting to know each other off the field.
The Celtics reportedly are "expected" to talk to the Mavericks about a deal for Andrew Bogut, according to scout.com, but negotiations would be "dependent on what bigger move Boston can make".
MORE TRADE TALK
Bogut, 32, is in the final year of his contract. The 7-foot center, while healthy, has played in only 26 games this year and is averaging just three points a game. But he's also averaging 8.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes, and rebounding has been one of the Celtics' big areas of weakness this year. The C's rank 27th in the league in reboundinh, and 26th in defensive rebounding.
According to scout.com, the Mavs would part with Bogut for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's first-round draft choices.
