Game 43: Flyers at Bruins

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will host the Flyers tonight. We could find out later this morning whether Milan Lucic will be available tonight. Lucic missed Tuesday’s 6-0 rolling of the Senators because of an upper-body injury. For now, we’ll go with Tuesday’s lineup.

The Flyers are arguably the best and deepest team in the Eastern Conference. Tonight should be a far sturdier test for the Bruins than the wobbling Senators.

Puck drop: 7 p.m.

Record: Flyers 27-10-5, Bruins 23-12-7

TV/radio info: NESN (Jack Edwards, Andy Brickley, Naoko Funayama), 98.5 The Sports Hub (Dave Goucher, Bob Beers)

Storylines: Patrice Bergeron has five goals and three assists in the last four games. Bergeron is coming off his first career hat trick… This will be Jody Shelley’s first game against the Flyers since sending Adam McQuaid into the end boards. Shelley was suspended for two games for the shove… Brian Boucher should be in goal for the Flyers. Chris Lee and Brad Watson will be the referees. Brian Murphy and Derek Nansen will be the linesmen.
