Bruins lineup looks the same for Game 3

NEW YORK -- The Bruins are not planning on making any lineup changes for Game 3 of their second-round playoff series Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Coach Claude Julien said he would be surprised if ailing defenseman Dennis Seidenberg played in the game. Seidenberg was one of the last four players on the ice for the optional morning workout (Aaron Johnson, Jay Pandolfo, and Kaspars Daugavins were the others), indicating that he will be out of uniform for a third straight game.

Fellow ailing defenseman Wade Redden skated in the workout. But Redden remained on the ice after Torey Krug had returned to the dressing room.

The Bruins are expecting Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi to play together on the Rangers’ top pairing. They did not play together in Games 1 and 2.

Girardi was on the ice for all five Boston goals in Game 2. The two defensemen played against Alex Ovechkin’s line in the opening round.

With Tuukka Rask staying off the ice Tuesday morning, goaltending coach Bob Essensa manned one net while Anton Khudobin patrolled the other crease.
