Thomas leads em out – Game 5 moments away

(S. babineau/Getty Images) Thomas will start for the Bruins in Game 5 as they look to take a 3-2 series lead tonight at the TD Garden

BOSTON — As expected, Tim Thomas leads the Bruins onto the ice for warmups and will go up against Carey Price for Game 5.

Here are your lineups from those pregame warmups.

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Mark Recchi
Rich Peverely-Chris Kelly-Michael Ryder
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
Tomas Kaberle-Johnny Boychuk
Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid

Tim Thomas
Tuukka Rask

Also of note, as stated by Bruins PR guru Eric Tosi on Twitter:

“Since the 04-05 work stoppage, 10 playoff Game 4’s have gone to OT. All 10 teams that won OT Game 4 went on to win their series.”

Karma could be on the Bruins side because one of those teams, the Washington Capitals, finished off the New York Rangers in five games and defeated the Blueshirts in double overtime in Game 4. On the other hand, the Pittsburgh Penguins, who also won Game 4 of their series against the Tampa Bay Lightning, lost today in Game 5, but still lead their series three-games-to-two.

Game 5 is moments away at TD Garden.
