Patrice Bergeron is expected to return for game five against the Panthers, and the Bruins practiced some intriguing line configurations on Tuesday morning.

Revamped Lines

During game four in Florida, head coach Jim Montgomery frequently altered the lines and seems to be maintaining that approach.
Boston's potential lineup for Wednesday night at TD Garden, based on practice line rushes, as reported by The Athletic's Fluto Shinzawa:
Bertuzzi-Bergeron-Pastrnak
Marchand-Coyle-Foligno
Hall-Zacha-DeBrusk
Lauko-Nosek-Hathaway
Frederic-Greer

Grzelcyk-McAvoy
Lindholm-Carlo
Forbort-Orlov
Zboril-Clifton

Ullmark
Swayman
Bussi

Ultimately, the lineup hinges on Bergeron's participation in game five (more details here).
Another interesting element is Montgomery's potential decision to separate Bergeron and Brad Marchand, a rare occurrence for Bruins fans.
Rookie Jakub Lauko is also placed on the fourth line left wing, with Trent Frederic and A.J. Greer sitting out. It remains to be seen if the head coach will stick with this arrangement.
