After an overtime thriller in Game 4, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins made some changes for Game 5. (No Dion Phaneuf trade yet, though, sorry.)

Frazer McLaren‘s injury opens the door for offensive defenseman John-Michael Liles‘ return to Toronto’s lineup.

Meanwhile, the Bruins swapped defensemen with Matt Bartkowski replacing Wade Redden in the lineup. The Bruins announced that Redden is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

Boston points out that this is Bartkowski’s playoff debut.

The Bruins host the Leafs in what could be a series-ending Game 5 on Friday. It’s about to start up on NHL Network at 7 p.m. ET.
