Bruins, Maple Leafs prepare for Game 3

TORONTO — Tuukka Rask  and Nathan Horton  were the only Bruins not to take the ice in Monday’s morning skate as the B’s prepared for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Maple Leafs .
Boston didn’t do full line rushes and Brad Marchand  and Milan Lucic  left before most of their teammates, so there were no indications of what Monday’s lineup will be. It’s expected that the forward lines will be the same as they were in Game 2, while the defense should return to Zdeno Chara -Dennis Seidenberg , Andrew Ference -Johnny Boychuk  and Wade Redden-Adam McQuaid with Ference back from a one-game suspension.
Maple Leafs  coach Randy Carlyle declined to share whether he’ll tweak his lineup from Game 2, but based on his team’s offensive success Saturday, it would be surprising if Carlyle made any changes. One thing to keep an eye on is Carlyle uses last change to his advantage in Toronto’s never-ending quest to have Phil Kessel  on the ice without Chara. Kessel’s breakaway goal on Saturday — his first even-strength goal against his former club in 24 games — came against the Seidenberg-Boychuk pairing.
