KANATA, ON -- The Bruins that made the trip are going through a full morning skate at the Scotiabank Place, home of the Ottawa Senators.
There is no Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas or Johnny Boychuk as expected, but otherwise the Bruins are out getting their work in prior to game No. 81 of the season. Lane MacDermid is again skating with the B's after getting called up from Providence on Wednesday morning.
Anton Khudobin was the first B's goaltender off the ice and it appears he'll get his first start in a Boston Bruins after a handful of games with the Minnesota Wild.
With Bergeron, Chara and Boychuk out the lines will certainly be taking a different look against the Senators in a sneak preview of the first round matchup that's seemed likely from the very beginning. Here are the expected lines for tonight, but it could look very different once the game gets going:
