Bruins lose Bergeron, fall 3-1 to Blackhawks in Game 5 of Stanley Cup finals

CHICAGO - As the Boston Bruins try to recapture momentum in the Stanley Cup final in Game 5, they could do so with a slightly different lineup. But coach Claude Julien is keeping everyone — including the Chicago Blackhawks — guessing.

It's not clear whether Carl Soderberg will make his Stanley Cup playoff debut Saturday night or whether the Bruins will stick with Kaspars Daugavins on the fourth line with Rich Peverley and Shawn Thornton. Neither player would say if he was playing.

Julien did not reveal his choice, saying he was still "tinkering" between Soderberg, who's a playmaker with more size, and Daugavins, who brings some more grit.

The injury to forward Gregory Campbell, when he broke his right fibula blocking a shot against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference final, forced Julien to consider multiple options. Jordan Caron and Jay Pandolfo were also possibilities, but the Game 5 choice is down to Soderberg or Daugavins.

Those players alternated line rushes during Boston's morning skate at United Center.

The rest of the Bruins' lineup will remain the same.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
