NEW YORK -- The Bruins look like they’ll be going with the exact same lineup for Game 3 as they did for the first couple of games of their best-of-seven series with the Rangers.
Wade Redden and Dennis Seidenberg were both not out on the ice for the pregame warm-up, and the Three Little Baby Bears -- Torey Krug, Dougie Hamilton and Matt Bartkowski -- should get their first taste of playoff hockey on the road together.
Up front, the Bruins will feature the exact same lineup once again.
In net, Tuukka Rask against Henrik Lundqvist will square off in a battle of goaltenders. Interestingly, Lundqvist is 5-0 with a 1.01 goals against average and a .966 save percentage in his last five Game 3’s during the playoffs. Game 3 is where the tide really turned in New York’s first round series against the Capitals.
Here are the expected line combos and D-parings based on pregame warm-up at Madison Square Garden:
