The debate is over: Carl Soderberg will take Kaspars Daugavins‘ spot in the Boston Bruins lineup for Game 5 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.

This marks the 26-year-old Swede’s playoff debut. He hasn’t played for Boston since the regular season finale against Ottawa (on April 28) and only has six NHL contests on his resume. He collected two assists in that time.

CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty reports that Soderberg skated with Shawn Thornton and Rich Peverley during warm-ups, making them his likely linemates.

    Pretty impressed with Soderberg. I was not in favor of putting him in for Daug, but again I am proven not to be as smart as an NHL coach.
