Seguin subs in for Patrice Bergeron, who is out indefinitely because of a concussion suffered on Tuesday against Ottawa.
ďItís going to be a little different for him,Ē said Claude Julien, referring to Seguinís defensive responsibilities. ďHeís not going to be on the wall. Heíll be low in support. Heís going to have to cover a little more territory. Itís something we all know Bergy does extremely well. Heís got some big shoes to fill. We donít expect him to fill them. But we expect him to go out there and do a decent job like everybody else.Ē
Based on the morning skate, Seguin will also share power-play time with Jagr on the No. 1 unit. Zdeno Chara was at the point, Seguin (left) and Jagr (right) manned their respective half-walls, Nathan Horton was the slot shooter, and Brad Marchand was the net-front presence.
* Kaspars Daugavins will make his Bruins debut alongside Jay Pandolfo and Rich Peverley. Daugavins might not see penalty-killing time tonight, Julien said.
* Chris Kelly participated in his first morning skate since suffering his broken left tibia on March 11. Kelly will practice with the team tomorrow and travel with the club to Montreal for Saturdayís game. While Julien didnít commit to Kellyís return against the Canadiens, he made it sound like the third-line center will return within the week.
* David Krejci will assume some of Bergeronís shorthanded minutes. Krejci was a regular penalty killer through 2008-09.

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton

Jay Pandolfo-Rich Peverley-Kaspars Daugavins
