The Boston Bruins and head coach Bruce Cassidy hit the ice for practice Wednesday morning as they prep for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. 

Having looked pretty good for the last couple of games, Cassidy likely won't shuffle his troops too much but he's forced to make some adjustments on the blueline. 

Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy has been suspended for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals so Cassidy needs to plug somebody in there. 

Kevan Miller isn't ready to return yet and John Moore is still a little banged up, so it seems that Connor Clifton will get bounced up to pair with Zdeno Chara on the first pairing. 


It also looks like Steven Kampfer will replace Clifton and pair with Matt Grzelcyk. 

Upfront, Noel Acciari was missing from practice once again. 

Here's a look at the lineup this morning:
