Bruins Lineup Changes for Game 5

David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Linus Ullmark, Jeremy Swayman

Heading into Boston for a potential elimination game, Boston is hopeful for the return of their Captain, Patrice Bergeron. After leaving the final regular season game with an injury, Bergeron has yet to make his postseason debut. After Bruins practice, Head Coach Jim Montgomery said that Bergeron would participate in warmups and be a game-time decision. According to a report from the Athletics Fluto Shinzawa, Trent Frederic is likely to be a healthy scratch if Bergeron draws into the lineup.

Here are the projected Bruins lines for Game 5

David Krejci will not play in Game 5. He did skate prior to the Bruins optional skate this morning, and he is expected to return in a potential Game 6 or in the next series.

One thing to note, Montgomery went out of his way after Game 4 to compliment the play of Swayman when asked about him possibly playing in Game 5. When asked if he was considered to get the start tonight, there was no hesitation, “No.”

The Bruins will look to close out the series against the Panthers tonight at the TD Garden as the Panthers will have Aaron Ekblad and Anthony Duclair returning to their lineup after missing Game 4.
