Storylines: Nathan Horton will miss his fifth straight game because of a concussion… This will be the Bruins’ first look at Alex Ovechkin. The Washington captain missed their last meeting because he was serving a three-game suspension for belting Zbynek Michalek… Dennis Seidenberg is good to go today. Seidenberg has cuts on his forehead and bridge of his nose after being hit by Joe Vitale yesterday… Kyle Rehman and Steve Kozari will be the referees. Michel Cormier and Lonnie Cameron will be the linesmen.
