BOSTON -- The Bruins will definitely have lineup changes when they face the Kings tonight, with Zdeno Chara (leg) and Gregory Campbell (foot) definitely out. Steven Kampfer will move in as the sixth defenseman.
Daniel Paille was awaiting the result of his final medical test so he could be cleared for game action after suffering a minor concussion last week. Zach Hamill is up on emergency recall, and head coach Claude Julien said the former first-round pick would most likely fill in for Campbell because of his experience as a center.
Assuming Paille's cleared, expect Jordan Caron to be a healthy scratch and the lines to look something like this:
It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
