Notes:

- Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Bruins 1970 Stanley Cup and "The Goal". The Bruins will unveil a statue of Bobby Or outside the TD Garden before tonight's game. For more information of the statue, check out my recent interview with the sculptor, Harry Weber.

- Daniel Carcillo did not practice with the Flyers on Sunday. He was either nursing his banged up knee or washing his '85 Camaro while rocking out to Iron Maiden. He is expected to play tonight.

- I think the B's will wrap this thing up tonight. Then they can rest up and watch the Pens and Habs beat up on each other.

- Dennis Seidenberg skated on Saturday for the first time since slicing a tendon in this forearm over a month ago in game against Toronto on April 3rd. Seidenberg skated on his own with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides. He is still not able to stretch the tendon, but said his recovery is on schedule.

- Tonight's game will air on NESN inside of New England. Versus will have coverage outside the region. The puck drops at 7:00. As always, the Public Skate open thread starts right here at 6:30.
