Notes:

- The Bruins are pretty banged up on the blue line. Dennis Seidenberg needed 15 stiches to close a gash on his wrist that he sustained during Saturday night's 2-1 overtime win over Toronto. Seidenberg is considered questionable for tonight's game. Mark Stuart had surgery on Sunday to treat a cellulitsis infection on his finger and will be out at least two weeks. Andrew Ference continues to deal with a hernia/groin issue and is not expected to be in the lineup tonight. The Bruins have recalled Andrew Bodnarchuk and Adam McQuaid to fill-in on the blue line if needed.

- We might not get a chance to see our old buddy Scott Walker tonight. Walker is day-to-day with a knee injury.

- Hopefully, the Caps will be in cruise control now that they have locked up the President's Trophy and the B's can catch then on their heels.

- The Bruins have not fared well against the Caps recently. Over the past two seasons, the B's have gone 1-4-1 against Washington. They have given up points to the Capitals in their last 7 meetings dating back to March of 2008.

- The Capitals own the most potent offense in the league (3.80 goals per game)

- Game starts at 7:00 and will be on Versus tonight. Public Skate open thread gets underway at 6:30.
