Chris Kelly scored in overtime to give the Bruins a 3-2 win over the Capitals in their final home game of the preseason Monday night at TD Garden.

They’ll finish out the preseason later this week with a pair of games against the Jets before opening up the regular season at home next Thursday against the Lightning.

The Bruins iced the following lineup:

Lucic – Krejci – Iginla Soderberg – Kelly – Smith Caron – Spooner – Johnson Paille – Lindblad – Thornton

The Bruins made four cuts from camp Sunday, the most notable of which was defenseman Zach Trotman. Other players released from camp were Malcolm Subban, Carter Camper and Justin Florek.

Chad Johnson bounced back amidst a shaky preseason and Carl Söderberg scored twice as the Bruins beat the Red Wings, 2-0, Saturday night in Detroit.

Johnson, who had allowed three goals on eight shots Monday in Montreal, stopped all 18 shots he saw vs. the Red Wings. This came two days after the Red Wings (with a stronger lineup than the one they iced Saturday) scored eight goals on Malcolm Subban.

The Bruins made their second round of cuts Friday, sending Anthony Camara, Chris Casto, Tommy Cross, Alex Fallstrom, Rob Flick, Seth Griffith, Alexander Khokhlachev, Jared Knight and Joe Morrow to Providence.

Patrice Bergeron will make his preseason debut Saturday night in Detroit against the Red Wings, Claude Julien said Friday.

Bergeron has participated fully in training camp after suffering a host of injuries in the Stanley Cup finals, including a separated shoulder, torn cartilage, a cracked rib and a punctured lung. He was taken to the hospital following Game 6 and would not have been able to play in a potential Game 7, as he stayed in the hospital for two days.

Last year at the trade deadline, the thinking was that the Bruins needed to add a potential top-six right wing for two reasons: first, to bolster the lineup, and second, as insurance for Nathan Horton, who had seen his previous two seasons end early due to injury -- specifically, concussions. 



Gregory Campbell will make his preseason debut Thursday as the Bruins host the Red Wings at TD Garden. Based on Thursday morning’s practice, Campbell will center a line with Daniel Paille and Craig Cunningham.

Campbell, who has participated fully in training camp but did not play in the team’s first two preseason games this week, has not played since breaking his leg in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Penguins.

The Bruins’ defensive picture got a little more interesting this preseason when Zach Trotman and Kevan Miller crashed a competition that was supposed to be between Torey Krug, Dougie Hamilton and Matt Bartkowski for two jobs in the Bruins’ lineup.

There were no surprises as the Bruins made their first round of cuts Wednesday, as camp invites Scott Campbell, Jack Downing, Steven Spinell and Ben Youds will head to Providence training camp. Tyler Randell and Adam Morrison have also been assigned to Providence.

With those cuts made, the group of players in camp is still pretty big and will remain split into two groups. Here’s the total roster for now:

Speaking to the media for the first time since deciding to take last season off, former Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas, who is currently on a professional tryout with the Panthers, said he simply “needed a break” last season and that not playing was the “right decision” for both him and his family.
