BOSTON – It appears to be the same lineup as Game 4 for the Boston Bruins in Saturday night’s Game 5, but the Montreal Canadiens have made a couple of changes, and kept a surprising player in the lineup. Proud playoff warrior Daniel Briere is out of the lineup as the fourth line center, and has been replaced by Brandon Prust, and statue/cigar store Indian Douglas Murray has stayed in the lineup in place of Francis Bouillon.

It sounds like Michel Therrien is bracing for a nasty, physical game by putting a couple of his hard edge guys into the lineup, so it bears watching as things play out at TD Garden with the series tied at 2-2.
Here are the line combos and D-pairings based on the pregame warm-up:
 
Lucic-Krejci-Iginla
Marchand-Bergeron-Smith
Fraser-Soderberg-Eriksson
Paille-Campbell-Thornton
 
Chara-Hamilton
Bartkowski-Boychuk
Krug-Miller
 
Rask
