It looks like the Bruins will go back to six defensemen this afternoon against the Lightning in Game 4.

Per the team, it looks like Karson Kuhlman will likely be back in the lineup. Sean Kuraly, who missed Game 3, did not practice yesterday. Kuraly was deemed “unfit to participate” due to an injury.

Lines from practice yesterday looked like this:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - Ondrej Kase

Nick Ritchie - Charlie Coyle - Karson Kuhlman/Jack Studnicka

Joakim Nordstrom - Par Lindholm - Chris Wagner/Anders Bjork

Obviously there are some extra guys on those lines, so we'll try to update once decisions are made.

Defensive pairings:

Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy

Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo

Matt Grzelcyk - Connor Clifton

John Moore and Jeremy Lauzon are likely scratches.

Jaroslav Halak will be in net.
