Morning briefing

SUNRISE, Fla. — Good morning from the BankAtlantic Center, where the Bruins will attempt to close out their pre-break schedule with their fourth straight win tonight against the Panthers. The Bruins scrubbed their morning skate, so we’ll wait until warmups to see what the lineup will look like. Expect Tuukka Rask to be in goal for the sixth straight game. Rask will be opposed by Tomas Vokoun.

* Milan Lucic, out with food poisoning yesterday, said he feels better today and should be back in. Lucic said he was throwing up every 20 minutes for a six-hour period. This is the second time Lucic has been felled by food poisoning this season. Shawn Thornton, also out with food poisoning yesterday, said he’s doing better too.
