Oshie did not participate in Wednesday’s morning skate prior to Game 3. He missed the last game of the regular season due to a lower-body injury suffered against the Philadelphia Flyers on May 8.
Eller left Game 2 with a lower-body injury midway through the second period.
Head coach Peter Laviolette told the media on Thursday that he was encouraged by the progress Eller had made but was unsure of his status for Game 4.
The Bruins lead the best-of-seven series, 2-1.
