    If Horton is a no go Lucic will be back. Will Claude put him back on the first line or will he be fourth line bound.

    Give Kreji some speed and players like Peverly and Soderberg; leave Bergie alone; have Lucic and caron play with kelly; and let Jagr try to earn some time with campbell and Paille

    Kreji/Peverly/Soderberg

    Bergeron/Marchand/Seguin

    Kelly/Lucic/Caron

    Campbell/Paille/Jagr

    Don't like Jagr playing with Campbell or Paille they didn't get him to play on the fourth line. I like Campbell and Paille but not with Jagr. JMO.

    PANTHERS (13-25-6) at BRUINS (26-12-5)

    TV: NHLN-CA, SUN, NESN

    Last 10: Florida 4-6-0; Boston 5-4-1

    Season series: This is the last of three meetings. The Boston Bruins won the first two, each 4-1, with goaltender Tuukka Rask stopping 63 of 65 shots (.969).

    Big story: The Bruins play the second in a stretch of six games in nine days to close the regular season, with a schedule redrawn after the events surrounding the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday. Boston is on a four-game losing streak but has lost little ground to the Montreal Canadiens in the Northeast Division race.

    "Now it's, hopefully, time to work ourselves into trying to get things back to normal again, but it will always leave a scar somewhere," Boston coach Claude Julien said, according to The Associated Press.

    The Florida Panthers have lost the first three of this four-game road trip, outscored 17-5, and five in a row overall, outscored 27-8.

    Team Scope:

    Panthers: Florida was looking ahead to this game earlier in the week due to the circumstances in Boston.

    "It is obviously very scary for the city of Boston and their residents," Panthers goalie Scott Clemmensen, who played four years at Boston College, told the team's website Friday. "At this point we have to focus on playing New Jersey [on Saturday] and continue to watch what happens with this ongoing situation."

    The Panthers lost to the Devils, 6-2, and close the season with three games in Florida, at home against the New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs, and at the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    "As this season is working toward Game 48, our commitment to defense has waned and hasn't been strong enough," coach Kevin Dineen said Saturday. "We're too easy to play against, and hence we are giving up five or six goals every game on this road trip."

    Bruins: Boston has not scored more than two goals during its four-game losing streak and 13 of its past 17 contests.

    "This is where we have to get better," Julien said Saturday after a 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. "We need to score a little bit more at one end, and we need some timely saves at the other. If we can fix those two kind of things, it'll certainly help our record."

    In an effort to boost the offense, center Carl Soderberg, who led the Swedish Elite League in goals this season, made his NHL debut Saturday. Forward Milan Lucic was a healthy scratch after scoring two goals in 27 games.

    "I thought he handled himself well for his first game," Julien said of Soderberg, who played 16:10. "The one thing he is, is a smart player and he's going to figure it out pretty quickly."

    The Bruins have allowed six power-play goals in the past three games after giving up five in the prior 21.

    "Right now, it just seems like they're getting some opportunities and they're going in, before maybe the pucks have hit a stick or we get a lucky bounce or what not," forward Brad Marchand said. "But we do have to work on getting pucks out a little more. We're giving them a few too many opportunities."

    Who's hot: Panthers forward Marcel Goc has four points in the past three games. … Bruins forward Tyler Seguin has four goals in his past five games. Marchand has four points in the past four games.

    Injury report: The Panthers are without goaltender Jose Theodore (groin), defensemen Ed Jovanovski (hip), and forwards Sean Bergenheim (groin), Eric Selleck (concussion), Kris Versteeg (knee) and Stephen Weiss (wrist). … Bruins forward Nathan Horton (upper body) left the game Saturday in the first period after a fight with Penguins forward Jarome Iginla.

    Balance is what was so successful for the Bruins in the past couple of years. I don't like to play "guess a line-up" usually, but I'd love to see:

    Marchand- Krejci-Jagr

    Soderberg-Bergeron-Seguin

    Lucic-Kelly-Peverley

    Paille-Campbell-Thornton

    Gives you speed, size, and defensive responsibility on each line.

    Lets go bhoys!!!

    Lucic/Kreji/Seguin,Marchand/Bergeron/Jagr/,Kelly/Peverly/Soderberg,Thornton/Cambell/Paille,Jagr needs to be with Bergeron,he sucks defensively,when the puck is in his end he stands at the blue line waiting for puck,

    "Balance is what was so successful for the Bruins in the past couple of years...." 'Sportsnutty'

     

    Horton's injury may actually - if only for today - bring real balance, some clarity to things and get Claude back to rolling 4 lines - not rolling 12 players. He needs to build some cohesion and some chemistry.

     

    Assuming Horton is absent today, here's what I throw out there...

     

    Marchand - Bergeron - Seguin

    Lucic - Krejci - Jagr

     

    (would actually consider switching Jagr and Seguin, but in the name of trying to solidify things and stopping the carousel of line combo experiments...)

    Soderberg - Kelly - Peverley

    Paille - Campbell - Thornton

    Why do you hope the Bruins can win? You took the time and started an entire thread begging for them to dump the rest of their games. Are you truly this schizophrenic?

    7 points in 8 games (+3 as well) hasn't earned him anything other than 4th line duty? Really?

    "Defensive pairings in rushes: Chara-Hamilton, Seidenberg-Redden, Ference-Boychuk. Line rushes in warm-ups: Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin, Lucic-Krejci-Peverley, Soderberg-Kelly-Jagr, Paille-Campbell-Thornton.

    Tuukka Rask leads Captain Chara and the Bruins out for warm-ups and will get the start in goal opposite Markstrom for Florida. Coach speaking to media pregame, said Nathan Horton is day-to-day (upper body) and Adam McQuaid is day-to-day (lower body)"

     

    Yes McQuaid and Horton got hurt standing up for their teammates, Way to go! I love early and mid-80s Boston Bruin hockey!

    Now you guys get to see the worst team in hockey.  They'll come out playing hard and fold like a cheap tent in the second. 

    I've been watching them all year.  Seriously, the worst team in the past 20 years.

    Let's go B's!

    For whatever it's worth -- Played multiple sports growing up and as an adult. Never bothered much in the way of superstitions a la many sports figures. Did a major Feng Shui on the Cave/Bruin Room this morning. Getting desperate in my old age.

    Panthers to watch:

    #7 Kulikov is a good young defenseman.

    #11 Huberdeau is an electric rookie.

    #18 is Matthias!

    #27 is recent college entry Nick Bjugstad.  Not sure if he's going to be anything, but he's pretty big and can move.

    #51 is Bryan Campbell.  A lot of people here have their opinions on Campbell, but haven't really watched him.  He's awesome.

    Not meant to be a wise-guy question.  If Lucic scores, fights and knocks around some Panthers does that mean his sitting out yesterday worked?
