WILMINGTON, Mass. — It’s last-gasp time for the Bruins, and head coach Claude Julien juggled his lines for today’s practice at Ristuccia Arena. The benefactor of it all is struggling winger Blake Wheeler, who skated with Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi.
There’s no telling if these will be the lines for Friday’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series with Philadelphia at TD Garden.
In one other twist, Brad Marchand is wearing a grey sweater with Daniel Paille, Vladimir Sobotka and Michael Ryder. But that just might be because the spare fourth-line sweaters (brick colored) is in the wash.
