Kennedy in, Vitale out for Penguins in Game 4

BOSTON -- Still looking for the lineup that will provide a jolt to the anemic attack of the Pittsburgh Penguins, coach Dan Bylsma made another lineup change for Game 4.

Forward Tyler Kennedy, scratched for the past two games, was reinserted into the lineup for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. He replaces Joe Vitale.

Kennedy missed the first four games of the postseason but played in seven straight before being scratched in Game 2 against the Bruins. He had two goals and three assists and was plus-6 in eight games.

Per line rushes in warmups, it looked like Kennedy would play on the fourth line with center Craig Adams and wing Brenden Morrow.

Pittsburgh's top three lines remained as they were in Game 3.

Boston also made one change -- as expected, the Bruins put forward Kaspsar Daugavins into the lineup for injured Gregory Campbell, who broke his right fibula blocking a shot in Game 3.

When I first became captain here, Monsieur Beliveau came to me and said, 'You're going to be fine. You don't have to change, you got selected because of who you are.'
