BOSTON – With first place in the Northeast Division on the line for the Boston Bruins when they play the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night at TD Garden, Bruins coach Claude Julien probably will return his first line to its usual form after separating Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Nathan Horton for two periods Monday in a win against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Lucic, Krejci and Horton skated together during the morning skate at TD Garden. Lucic snapped a 15-game goal drought against the Maple Leafs.

Johnny Boychuk skated with the team, but Julien said the defenseman’s status was uncertain. Boychuk was injured during practice last Friday and he has missed two games.

The Canadiens, who lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night, did not hold a full skate.

Here are the projected lineups for the Bruins and Canadiens:
