Game Notes:

- In somewhat of a surprising move given the schedule of the week and some meaningless game on New Years Day , according to boston.com it will be Tim Thomas in net tonight for the Bruins against Mike Smith of the Lightning.

Milan Lucic skated with the team this morning, but remains on the IR and will not play tonight.

- Face-off is at 7:30, public skate here on The Chowder at 6:30.
