The Florida Panthers will have Sergei Bobrovsky in net Saturday afternoon when they visit the Boston Bruins (3:30 p.m., ABC).

Florida coach Paul Maurice will basically roll out the same lineup he had Thursday in Ottawa although Steven Lorentz continues to battle an illness and will be replaced on the fourth line by Jonah Gadjovich.

The starting goalies will be Bobrovsky vs. Linus Ullmark.

Per BostonHockeyNow.com, Ullmark is 4-2-0 with a 1.51/.950 since the March 8 NHL Trade Deadline when he turned down a trade which would have sent him to the Western Conference.

On Tuesday, Ullmark made 31 saves in a 3-0 win against Nashville.

Ullmark is 11-3-1 against Florida in the regular season with a 2.50/.929. He is 2-0 against the Panthers thus far this season.

Boston, which holds a four-point lead on Florida in the race for the Atlantic Division title, has won all three games against the Panthers thus far.

The Panthers would have the tiebreaker if both teams tie for first when the season ends.
