The Boston Bruins
made two changes to their lineup as they try to stave off elimination in Game 6 of this Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Washington Capitals
at Verizon Center.
Defenseman Joe Corvo
, who missed part of Game 5 after an apparent injury, was replaced by Mike Mottau
, and fourth-line forward Shawn Thornton
was scratched in favor of Jordan Caron
. This is the series debut for both Mottau, who was acquired at the trade deadline from the New York Islanders
, and the rookie Caron.
Caron played 23 games for the Bruins last season and 48 in the 2011-12 campaign, but he is making his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut Sunday afternoon.
