Tuukka Rask should be in goal today after backing up Chad Johnson Saturday. For now, we’ll assume there are no other lineup changes.
Puck drop: 12:30 p.m.
TV/radio info: NBC, 98.5 The Sports Hub (Dave Goucher, Bob Beers)
Records: Bruins 51-17-6, Flyers 39-27-7
Projected Bruins lineup:
Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Jarome Iginla
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Reilly Smith
Chris Kelly-Carl Soderberg-Loui Eriksson
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara-Dougie Hamilton
Andrej Meszaros-Johnny Boychuk
Torey Krug-Kevan Miller
Healthy scratches: Jordan Caron, Matt Bartkowski, Corey Potter
Storylines: If he plays, this will be Andrej Meszaros’s first game against his old team. The Bruins acquired Meszaros from the Flyers at the trade deadline for a conditional third-round pick. Meszaros displaced Matt Bartkowski on the second pairing Saturday. Meszaros also manned the point on the No. 2 power-play unit instead of Reilly Smith… The Flyers will be seeking revenge for their 6-1 loss to the Bruins earlier this season. The Flyers, however, are a different team than the one the Bruins played earlier. Philadelphia could have home-ice advantage in the first round, which is a significant feat given their wretched start under former coach Peter Laviolette… Tim Peel and Dennis LaRue will be the referees. Pierre Racicot and Greg Devorski will be the linesmen.
