Good morning from TD Banknorth Garden, site of the Bruins’ final game before tomorrow’s 3 p.m. deadline. If you want to discuss the deadline and anything else Bruins-related, check back in around 1 p.m. for some good pucks talk.

Some tidbits from the game notes:

* We should know later this morning whether Milan Lucic will be available for tonight’s game. Lucic missed Saturday’s 4-3 overtime loss to Washington because of an upper-body injury suffered the game before when fighting Anaheim’s Mike Brown.

* Philadelphia has the fifth-best power play in the league (22 percent) and the seventh-best penalty kill (83.1 percent).

* Like the Bruins (29-1-2), the Flyers have lost only one game (21-1-2) when they’ve held the lead after two periods.

* Philadelphia averages 18 penalty minutes per game, most in the league.

* The Flyers are without ex-Bruin Glen Metropolit, who was claimed by Montreal last week.

* Dave Jackson and Chris Rooney will be the referees. Jonny Murray and Tony Sericolo will be the linesmen.
