Nathan Horton, Jaromir Jagr Return to Bruins Lineup at Practice

Jerome Iginla, Nathan HortonBruins coach Claude Julien has mixed and matched his lines for much of the season, and that appears to be continuing on the eve of the club’s playoff series with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The B’s had Monday off but returned to the ice on Tuesday, and when they did, they had a couple of reinforcements. Most notable was the return of winger Nathan Horton. The big forward hasn’t played since April 20 against the Pittsburgh Penguins where he left the game in the first period with an upper-body injury after fighting Jarome Iginla. Also returning to the ice Tuesday was Jaromir Jagr. The future Hall of Famer missed the team’s final two games of the season due to flu-like symptoms. He was also back on the ice taking his turns on Tuesday.

Here’s what the Bruins lines looked like at practice Tuesday in advance of Game 1 on Wednesday.

Brad Marchand — Patrice Bergeron — Tyler Seguin
Milan Lucic — David Krejci — Nathan Horton
Kaspars Daugavins — Chris Kelly — Jaromir Jagr
Daniel Paille — Gregory Campbell — Daniel Paille

Forward Rich Peverley was wearing a green jersey at practice and skating with the healthy scratches. Something could change between now and puck drop Wednesday night, but it would appear that Peverley is the odd man out for now. The same appears to be the case for Carl Soderberg, who has skated in just six games with the Bruins after coming over from Sweden.

Julien, however, did say that he would wait until Wednesday to make his final lineup decisions.
