Kelly cleared to play in Game 4 for B's

MONTREAL -- Bruins center Chris Kelly will be in the lineup for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals Thursday night after being cleared by team doctors. Kelly, who returned to Boston to be examined following a hit into Carey Price's goal on Monday, wore a cage in morning skate and will do so Thursday night. He said that doctors determined there was no fracture after being examined.

"I'm good to play tonight," Kelly said afterwards. "I went back to see our doctors in Boston and they gave me the green light and said everything is great and to just go out and have fun."

Coach Claude Julien confirmed that Kelly would play, saying the third-line center is "good to go" and that "he's going to be in the lineup tonight."

Kelly was shoved by Habs forward Scott Gomez while the Bruins were on a 3-on-1 in the first period. The B's center said he took no issue with the hit, which caused him to slide head-first into the post and left him with a shiner below his right eye. 

"I know Gomez. I played against him for a lot of years," Kelly said. "He's a good, honest player and works hard. I don't think it was deliberate by any means."

As for any lineup changes, it appears there won't be any. Mark Recchi was the only Bruin to not take the ice for the morning skate, though it's likely the veteran was simply given the morning off. Rookie Tyler Seguin stayed out on the ice with the scratches following the skate.
