Veteran forward Rich Peverley was a healthy scratch for Game 1, but he may be poised to return to the lineup for Game 2 on Saturday night at TD Garden. If the Bruins’ lines at practice Friday are any indication, he should be back in there.
Peverley was back on the de facto third line at practice Friday in Wilmington, Mass., where he was skating alongside Chris Kelly and Jaromir Jagr. Peverley had four goals and eight assists in 25 playoff games with the Bruins in 2011, but he had just 6-12-18 totals and was a minus-9 this season.
The rest of the lines remain the same as they were for Game 1, so that likely means that Kaspars Daugavins would be the odd man out. Daugavins skated on the third line in Game 1 where he played just 9:52 while putting two shots on goal. Daugavins was wearing a green sweater at practice, which is what the healthy scratches wear.
Here are the Bruins’ lines, according to the jerseys they were wearing.
Milan Lucic — David Krejci — Nathan Horton
Brad Machand — Patrice Bergeron — Tyler Seguin
Rich Peverley — Chris Kelly — Jaromir Jagr
Daniel Paille — Gregory Campbell — Shawn Thornton
