Lightning pull shocker by starting Smith in net in Roloson’s place

BOSTON — Guy Boucher’s mind games apparently have become much more.

The Tampa Bay coach had Mike Smith lead his team out to the ice for warm-ups for tonight’s Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final with the Bruins at the TD Garden.

Smith has not made a start in the postseason and has made just two relief appearances — both in this series. He has stopped 29 of 29 shots.

The Bruins look like they’re keeping the same lines and D pairs for their attempt to beat Smith and grab the lead in this series.

Lucic-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Bergeron-Recchi

Ryder-Kelly-Seguin

Paille-Campbell-Peverley

Chara-Seidenberg

Ference-Boychuk

Kaberle-McQuaid

Here are the Lightning’s lines and D pairs as per warm-ups:

Purcell-Lecavalier-St. Louis

Gagne-Stamkos-Malone

Bergenheim-Moore-Downie

B. Jones-Thompson-Hall

Brewer-Ohlund

Hedman-Clark

Lundin-M. Bergeron
