Lined Up: Game #3 @ Bruins

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

The Sens skated this morning in Boston ahead of Game #3 against the Bruins and we've got everything you need to know about their line-up for tonight.

After the morning skate, head coach Guy Boucher spoke to the media and passed alone the lone change to the Sens line-up for tonight: "We have Harpur replacing Boro. Boro is day-to-day...but not today. Then we have the same forwards as last game."

Borowiecki left Game #2 fairly early on and logged just 3:43 of TOI before sustaining a lower-body injury. His status only being listed as "day-to-day" is encouraging though as he took a nasty tumble into the boards while finishing a check in the neutral zone.

Ben Harpur, who has skated in 6 games for the Sens this season, will make his NHL Playoff debut tonight. His development in the AHL this season has drawn high praise from Sens management and culminated with being named the team's MVP for this season. When asked about inserting a young player like Harpur into his line-up, Boucher said "the reality is that the young players are more ready than they ever were before."

We also saw some new line rushes at this morning's skate but as usual, take them with a grain of salt. Boucher has mixed and matched his lines all series and I'd expect that to continue tonight.

With that, here's how our projected line-up looks for Game #3...


For reference, these were the lines the Sens rolled for the bulk of Game #2 so there's always a possibility that you'll see variations that would include these.

Dzingel - Turris - Burrows

MacArthur - Brassard - Ryan

Hoffman - Pageau - Stone

Stalberg - Smith - Pyatt


In Goal

Craig Anderson once again gets the start in goal for the Sens. Anderson is 2-0-0 against the Bruins in Boston this season with both of those wins coming in the past month.

No surprise at the other end of the rink either as it's expected Tuukka Rask will start in goal for the Bruins.
