Stanley Cup Final, Game 3: Viktor Stalberg in, Brandon Bollig scratched

Jonathan Daniel

While the Boston Bruins will be keeping the same lineup for Game 3, the Chicago Blackhawks are expected to make roster changes.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Viktor Stalberg will be replacing Brandon Bollig in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night, according to the team's line combinations at morning skate.

Stalberg was a healthy scratch in the first two games of the series.

Bollig was on the ice for the Boston Bruins' game-winning goal in the overtime portion of Game 2. Defenseman Brent Seabrook sent a pass behind the Chicago goal that was intended for Bollig. The forward failed to corral the puck, which resulted in a Boston attack and the eventual game-winner. It appears as though his coach was not satisfied with the situation.

Stalberg will be paired with Marcus Kruger and Michael Frolik. Brandon Saad will play with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, while Michal Handzus will center Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp. Bryan Bickell will be paired with David Bolland and Andrew Shaw.

The Bruins are expected to keep the same lines together from the end of Game 2 for the start of Game 3.
