It’s likely changes are coming to the Bruins lineup for Game 4 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Friday’s morning skate will provide a more clear picture of what those changes will be.

Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk did not participate in Thursday’s practice because they were undergoing “maintenance days,” according to coach Bruce Cassidy. That meant Danton Heinen moved up to the first line and Ryan Donato played left wing on the second line with David Krejci and Rick Nash.

“We’ll assess it in the morning,” Cassidy said Thursday. “We’ll probably tinker. (We're) not going to tell you who is going in (and) who’s going out because we've got to get the healthy guys and go from there.”
