Only one major change for the Bruins for today's matinee game against the Lightning - Adam McQuaid is out, Matt Bartkowski is in.

We're going to skip the complaining about a matinee game on a day that most people still have to work, but just know this: we're not happy about it.

Tampa is rolling 11 forwards and 7 D for some inexplicable reason, and it seems to be working for them - they've won four straight games coming into today.
