The Bruins will close out their extended road trip Tuesday night, meeting the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

Boston has been on a roll to start the season, beginning its centennial campaign with a win over the Blackhawks on opening night. It rallied off four more since then, most recently defeating the Anaheim Ducks to round out a three-game tour of California.

The Bruins have tinkered with their lines throughout the early portion of the season, whether it be on purpose or in response to off-ice influences. The line won’t look too different Tuesday, but Matthew Poitra’s unit will bump down a spot in the rotation. Patrick Brown will skate for Milan Lucic, who took a slapshot off the foot last week.

Jeremy Swayman will start between the pipes, with Boston continuing their one-for-one rotation between him and Linus Ullmark.
