Lined Up: Game #4 @ Bruins

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

No changes are expected for the Sens line-up tonight in Game #4 as the Sens look to repeat their efforts on Monday with the same group.

Mark Borowiecki remains the lone injury for the Sens in the series after leaving Game #2 midway through the first period but head coach Guy Boucher mentioned earlier today that he is continuing to progress. 

"Boro is getting closer everyday," said Boucher during Wednesday's media availability. "But we felt that Ben Harpur did so well, like every game that he's played up until now, that we didn't need to force things."

Harpur, who has skated in 6 regular season games for the Sens, made his NHL Playoff debut in Game #3 finishing with 1 shot, 2 blocks and a +1 rating in 17:26 of TOI. 

Not only are there no changes to the active roster, the lines and pairings also looked the same at this morning's skate in Boston. Here's a look at the Sens' projected line-up for Game #4...

 

In Goal

Craig Anderson looks to keep his perfect record (3-0-0) in Boston this season in tact tonight after earning the decision in Game #3 on Monday. Anderson has seen his personal numbers dip slightly during the opening round of the playoffs but can still be relied upon to make those clutch stops he's been making all year late in games. His current save percentage during the postseason sits at .892 but that number jumps up to .925 in the third perod and overtime this series. In fact, Anderson hasn't surrendered a goal in either of those frames since Game #1 when Boston scored the tying and eventual game winner in the third period.

Once again it will be Tuukka Rask in goal for the Bruins tonight. Rask's numbers have also taken a hit in the playoffs where he's seen his save percentage drop from .915 in the regular season to .898 in the playoffs.
