The Bruins have finished their final practice before the Stanley Cup final opens tomorrow. They have also wrapped up their media obligations.

Rich Peverley was the fourth skater on the No. 2 line. Peverley's presence indicates that he may spell Mark Recchi like he did in Game 7 against Tampa Bay.

Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Mark Recchi/Rich Peverley
Michael Ryder-Chris Kelly-Tyler Seguin
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
Andrew Ference-Johnny Boychuk
Tomas Kaberle-Adam McQuaid

Tim Thomas
Tuukka Rask

The Bruins spent at least half the session working on their power play. Zdeno Chara remained in front on the first unit. During one drill, Chara and Gregory Campbell locked up in front of Tim Thomas. According to Thomas, Dennis Seidenberg sent a one-timer through Chara's screen that deflected off Campbell and went into the net.

PP1: Kaberle-Seidenberg-Krejci-Horton-Chara

PP2 does not appear set in stone. Andrew Ference and Patrice Bergeron worked the point, while Mark Recchi was down low. But the two remaining spots look like they are for grabs between Milan Lucic, Michael Ryder, Tyler Seguin, and Rich Peverley.

PP2: Ference-Bergeron-Recchi-Seguin/Ryder-Lucic/Peverley.
