The Bruins enter their regular-season finale Tuesday night with a chance to clinch the Atlantic Division.

Boston plays the Ottawa Senators at TD Garden on the second night of a back-to-back. The Black and Gold can clinch the Atlantic Divison with a win of any type, but a loss would then have the team’s eyes toward the Florida Panthers-Toronto Maple Leafs matchup to determine the division winner.

The Bruins loaned Johnny Beecher to Providence head of Tuesday’s matchup and recalled Jayson Megna. Boston did not hold morning skate, so it’s unknown if the veteran will make his debut. It’s expected that James van Riemsdyk will return to the lineup and skate on the fourth line with Jesper Boqvist and Pat Maroon.

Defenseman Brandon Carlo left Monday’s loss to the Washington Capitals in the third period due to an undisclosed injury. Matt Grzelcyk would slot into the lineup if Carlo cannot suit up. Linus Ullmark will rotate into the lineup for Jeremy Swayman.
