Lindholm, who been out since Game 2 when he took a massive hit from Canes forward Andrei Svechnikov, sounded ready to go for Thursday night’s tilt.

Bruins' Hampus Lindholm: Expected to play Thursday

Lindholm (upper body) is slated to return to the lineup against Carolina on Thursday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. Lindholm has been sidelined for the Bruins' last three playoff contests due to his upper-body injury but appears poised to suit up in Game 6.

How the Bruins’ defense overcame the losses of Charlie McAvoy, Hampus Lindholm in Game 4

Bruce Cassidy didn’t expect the cleanest of outings from his six defensemen entering Game 4 without Charlie McAvoy and Hampus Lindholm. The Boston Bruins encountered some mishaps against the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday afternoon, failing to cover the slot on Brett Pesce’s first-period marker and struggling to clear the zone on Jordan Staal’s tally early in the middle frame. But collectively, Brandon Carlo, Matt Grzelcyk, Derek Forbort, Josh Brown, Connor Clifton and Mike Reilly, filled in admirably in the next-man-up scenario without McAvoy and Lindholm to even the series.
