Some big-time changes in practice today, with Marco Sturm reuniting with Patrice Bergeron, and the old No. 2 line of Blake Wheeler, David Krejci, and Michael Ryder getting back together:
* Daniel Paille and Trent Whitfield have switched lines. Paille, who had started practice with Steve Begin and Shawn Thornton, is now with Vladimir Sobotka and Brad Marchand.
* No sign of Byron Bitz. Johnny Boychuk is the seventh defenseman.
