-Brad Marchand is questionable for this afternoon’s division bout, after he took an errant shot to the leg from Adam McQuaid in practice Saturday morning.
-There’s little to no update on Zdeno Chara’s status, he’s still considered "day-to-day" after Bruins training staff re-assessed the lower body injury that’s kept him out of the lineup the last two games.
-This is the first meeting between the B’s and the Bolts at TD Garden this season. The two squads met earlier in November, where Jimmy Hayes’ shootout winner in the 10th round gave the Black and Gold a 4-3 victory.
-The Lightning are coming off a tremendous stretch of games, 5-2-0 in their last 7 games, including a 5 game road trip were they went 4-1-0. Even without Captain Stamkos, the Bolts keep rolling along.
