Carl Soderberg in, Kaspars Daugavins out in Game 5

CHICAGO — Claude Julien [1] wasn’t bluffing when he gave Carl Soderberg time on the fourth line in Game 5 preparations, as Soderberg is in the lineup making his postseason debut Saturday night at United Center.

Soderberg is in the lineup in place of Kaspars Daugavins and will play with Rich Peverley [2] and Shawn Thornton [3] on the fourth line. Daugavins had seen his ice time drop over the course of the Stanley Cup [4] finals, playing just 5:57 in Game 4. The former Swedish Elite League star played just six games for the B’s during the regular season, the most recent of which was April 28 against the Senators, which was the Bruins’ last game of the regular season.

The Bruins’ lineup is as follows:

Lucic – Krecji – Horton
Marchand – Bergeron – Jagr
Paille – Kelly – Seguin
Soderberg – Peverley – Thornton

Chara – Seidenberg
Ference – Boychuk
Krug – McQuaid
