Milan Lucic
Patrice Bergeron
Mark Recchi
Marco Sturm
David Krejci
Miroslav Satan
Brad Marchand
Vladimir Sobotka
Blake Wheeler
Daniel Paille

Zdeno Chara

"You've got to do something on the ice when we're struggling to score goals and we've got certain guys who aren't going as well," Claude Julien said. "You hope that making changes will either spark them, wake them up, or at least give different lines some better opportunities."

* Andrew Ference (groin) will not make the trip to Toronto. Ference will most likely miss Monday's game against Washington as well.

* Shawn Thornton, who missed last night's game because of an upper-body injury, said he's fit to play tomorrow.
