Bruins center Marc Savard, injured at the start of the third period Tuesday night in Carolina, skated for a few minutes in this morning's practice at the Garden and was proclaimed fit and able by Boston coach Claude Julien.
''Yeah, same lineup tonight,'' was Julien's matter-of-fact response at this morning's news conference when queried about Savard's availability for Game 7. ''There shouldn't be any changes.''
Media members were denied requests to interview the 31-year-old after the workout.
Provided Savard suits up, look for these lines:
Milan Lucic-Savard-Phil Kessel
Mark Recchi-Patrice Bergeron-Chuck Kobasew
PJ Axelsson-David Krejci-Michael Ryder
Byron Bitz-Stephane Yelle-Shawn Thornton
And these 'D' pairings:
Zdeno Chara-Aaron Ward
Steve Montador-Dennis Wideman
Mark Stuart-Shane Hnidy
