Game 3: Canucks at Bruins

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will look to score their first win of the series tonight against the Canucks.

The Bruins might be considering some lineup changes for Game 3. Shawn Thornton, a healthy scratch for the last seven games, could be under consideration for tonight. Boston’s fourth line hasn’t been as effective as Vancouver’s fourth unit.

For now, however, we’ll assume the lineup remains the same as Game 2. We’ll update if we get any information.

Puck drop: 8 p.m. EST

Record: Canucks 2-0, Bruins 0-2
