WILMINGTON, Mass. — Could this be a peek at what the Bruins’ lineup will look like in St. Louis now that Marc Savard should be back in the mix?
At today’s practice at Ristuccia Arena, Savard centered a line with Marco Sturm and Byron Bitz. Milan Lucic moved up into a second-line spot with Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi. With the Blake Wheeler–David-Krejci–Michael Ryder line still in tact, the Bruins skated Daniel Paille, Steve Begin, Shawn Thornton and Vladimir Sobotka in fourth-line brick sweaters. One of those last four will be the healthy scratch.
All seven defensemen and two goaltenders were on the ice for the Bruins, who departed for Monday night’s game in St. Louis and Wednesday’s game in Minnesota after the session.
