|05.01.09 at 6:42 pm ET|
A few quick tidbits before the game starts:
–Carolina head coach Paul Maurice has decided to keep the top line of Ray Whitney, Eric Staal and Chad LaRose together after many thought he would break them up to avoid a complete line shutdown by Zdeno Chara.
–Andrew Ference is in the lineup after missing the first round series vs. Montreal with a lower body injury. Shane Hnidy was the healthy scratch for the Bruins.
