Claude Julien praised the fourth line of Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell, and Shawn Thornton. Julien said against Washington, they played one of their best games in the last year and a half.
Julien hasn’t been as happy with the No. 3 line, primarily Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley. Neither of the forwards has played well at both ends of the ice. Based on this morning’s line rushes, Jay Pandolfo will skate alongside Kelly and Peverley. Chris Bourque will be the healthy scratch.
A possible lineup for tonight:
Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Jay Pandolfo-Chris Kelly-Rich Peverley
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton
Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid
