Down 1-0 in playoffs, Leafs say a win Saturday can put pressure on Bruins @NHLdotcom

BOSTON - Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle shook up his lines at practice Friday ahead of Game 2 of their Eastern Conference quarter-final with the Boston Bruins.

Centre Tyler Bozak was between Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul on the first line, while James van Riemsdyk moved to a line with Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin.

Nazem Kadri was with Leo Komarov and Ryan Hamilton, and Jay McClement skated with Clarke MacArthur and Colton Orr.

Drew MacIntyre replaced backup goalie Ben Scrivens at practice. Scrivens was in Alberta for his grandfather's funeral in Spruce Grove but is expected back in time for Saturday's game.

MacIntyre, a 29-year-old from Charlottetown who spent the season with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League, was called up as an emergency replacement for the practice at a Boston University rink.

Kessel and defenceman Cody Franson returned to practice after missing Thursday's session ??? Kessel for a so-called maintenance day and Franson with a bruised foot.

As for the Bruins, coach Claude Julien cited defencemen Dougie Hamilton, Aaron Johnson and Mark Bartkowski as possible replacements for the suspended Andrew Ference.
