Bruins will play without Chara, Campbell
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:

BRUINS
Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Tyler Seguin
Benoit Pouliot - Chris Kelly - Rich Peverley
Daniel Paille - Zach Hamill - Shawn Thornton

Dennis Seidenberg - Joe Corvo
Andrew Ference - Adam McQuaid
Johnny Boychuk - Steven Kampfer

Tuukka Rask
Tim Thomas

We have to develop into a good team. We have to develop the pieces now that are a little more evident and in place to become a good team. It's not there yet.
