BOSTON — Boston Bruins second-year winger Milan Lucic seems to be ready to return after a two-game absence with an upper-body injury tonight against the Phoenix Coyotes at TD Banknorth Garden.

But at least to start, he seems like he’ll be playing farther down in the line-up than he’s grown accustomed to. Lucic skated the warm-up with the fourth line alongside Stephane Yelle and Shawn Thornton, while new acquisition Mark Recchi skated with the top line next to Marc Savard and Phil Kessel.

Here’s a look at the Bruins’ lines and D pairs from warm-ups:

Recchi-Savard-Kessel
Axelsson-Bergeron-Kobasew
Wheeler-Krejci-Ryder
Lucic-Yelle-Thornton

Chara-Ward
Ference-Wideman
Stuart-Montador

Tim Thomas will start in net.
