Last minute lineup notes for Caps-Bruins Game 7

Apr 25, 2012, 7:42 PM EDT


Tonight’s Game 7 doesn’t carry the lineup uncertainly that we might see with the Ottawa Senators or the Florida Panthers’ goalie situation, but even little tweaks can make a difference – especially in a series this close. With that in mind, the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa passes along the last-minute lineup notes for the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals.

In for Boston: Jordan Caron and Mike Mottau; out for Boston: Shawn Thornton and Joe Corvo.

In for Washington: Jeff Schultz; out for Washington: John Erskine.

Could any of these players play the role of the goat or the hero? The beauty of the playoffs – particularly a Game 7 – is that you never know. We’ll begin to find out in mere moments.

    Milan Lucic is the dirtiest player ive seen this entire season. I love the NHL playoffs but players like this need to suspended no questions asked.

      what does that even have to do with the line up changes and if Caron, Motteu and Schultz will be heros?

        It’s got everything to do with it because anyone who’s a true hockey fan watching this series would agree that Lucic is such a dirty player, how don’t you get a penalty for laying out a guy going over the bench on a line change.

        ok well that has to do with the game, not the changes in what the line up’s are of the two teams
