Bruins' Seguin back with Bergeron, Marchand

BOSTON -- Back on the ice for the Boston Bruins one day after sitting out practice due to a maintenance day, Tyler Seguin was back in a familiar spot, one he hadn't been in for a short while, during line rushes Tuesday at TD Garden.

Seguin skated on right wing alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. From the third period of Boston's win against the Montreal Canadiens on Feb. 6 through their next game, at the Buffalo Sabres on Feb. 10, Seguin had switched places with Nathan Horton and skated with David Krejci and Milan Lucic.

That switch paid off in Montreal, as the newly formed Seguin-Krejci-Lucic top line scored goals on its first two shifts to lead the way to victory. Just because the lines reverted to their old form during the morning skate, however, doesn't mean coach Claude Julien won't shuffle things if his team needs another spark Tuesday against the New York Rangers (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN).

"Interchangeable. There's other guys too," Julien said of his forwards. "Like I said before, even after they came out and did a great job in Montreal, I said, 'Listen, this could be temporary, this could be permanent, it depends.' Again, there's some players there that are interchangeable and it gives us some different options."

Here is the Bruins' projected lineup:

Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Nathan Horton

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Tyler Seguin

Chris Bourque - Chris Kelly - Rich Peverley

Daniel Paille - Gregory Campbell - Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara - Johnny Boychuk

Dennis Seidenberg - Dougie Hamilton

Andrew Ference - Adam McQuaid

Tuukka Rask

Anton Khudobin

Scratched: Aaron Johnson

Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
