Here are the Bruins’ lines and D pairs as per the warm-up:

Lucic-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Bergeron-Recchi

Kelly-Peverley-Ryder

Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Montreal’s Andrei Kostitsyn, who missed the morning skate today, took the warm-up but is scratched. Jeff Halpern filled Kostistyn’s slot in the morning skate but did not go on the ice for warm-ups. Yannick Weber was added to the Montreal lineup.
