Bruins lines remain the same in anticipation of Game 3

The Bruins sported the same lines in Monday’s morning skate as they did in the second half of Saturday’s Game 2 win against the Blackhawks.

The third line remains Chris Kelly [1] between Daniel Paille [2] and Tyler Seguin [3], while the team’s fourth line of Rich Peverley [4] between Kaspars Daugavins and Shawn Thornton [5] likely won’t be used much. Though the B’s are a team that rolled four lines throughout the regular season, expect more of a three-line rotation for the majority of this series.

Lucic – Krejci – Horton
Marchand – Bergeron – Jagr
Paille – Kelly – Seguin
Daugavins – Peverley – Thornton

Chara – Seidenberg
Ference – Boychuk
Krug – McQuaid


Thornton, who played just 4:56 in Saturday’s overtime win, was on D&C (with M) Monday and had a great quote about the lines.

“When I’m with Paille and Kells it’s the fourth line,” Thornton said. “When Segs is with them it’s the third line. I don’t understand how that works.”
