Game 8: Sharks at Bruins

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will play the third match of their four-game homestand tonight against San Jose.

The Bruins are going through an optional morning skate. Tim Thomas is not present, so we’ll assume he’ll get the nod in goal.

Adam McQuaid is skating this morning. For now, we’ll assume he sits out tonight, although he could be a game-time decision.

Puck drop: 7 p.m.

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