Morning briefing

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will face off against the Maple Leafs tonight. Patrice Bergeron was one of seven Bruins to participate in an optional skate this morning. Bergeron (groin) will not play tonight for a second straight game, but he said he’s feeling better.

* Dennis Seidenberg also skated this morning. Seidenberg will play tonight and wear No. 44, the jersey last worn by Aaron Ward, also an ex-Hurricane (correction: Andy Wozniewski last wore No. 44).

* Tom Kowal and Dan O’Rourke will be the referees. Brian Mach and Mark Pare will be the linesmen.
