The Bruins will play host to The Hockey Team Formerly Known as The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim tonight at 7:00 at the TD Banknorth Garden. The B's will be looking carry the momentum from Tuesday night's 6-1 victory over the Panthers into tonight's game, while the Ducks have their eyes set on a third straight win that could vault them as many as four places in the extremely tight Western Conference standings.

Just who are these Ducks you speak of?

Notes:

- Tim Thomas was the first goalie off the ice during the optional morning skate. He will likely be the starter tonight.

- This will be only the second time that Shawn Thornton has played his former team since joining the Bruins. I don't know about you, but I would like to see him throw down with George Parros.

- B's fans will get a closer look at Chris Pronger, a name that has reappeared in Bruins trade rumors.

- Anaheim's PK has struggled lately. They have only killed 70% of penalties over the last 5 games.

- The Bruins are 21-6-5 this season on one day's rest.
