Will Chris Pronger be on the move before Wednesday? (David Duprey/AP)

Good morning from TD Banknorth Garden, where the Bruins will play the second match of their six-game homestand tonight against Anaheim, one of those bubble teams that might become sellers by next Wednesday.

Some tidbits from the game notes:

* Anaheim has four players on injured reserve: Francois Beauchemin, Samuel Pahlsson, Brad Larson, and Kent Huskins.

* Like the Bruins (28-1-2), the Ducks have lost only once in games where they've led after two periods (19-1-0).

* Anaheim has the sixth-best power play in the league (22 percent).

* Kerry Fraser and Steve Kozari will be the referees. Steve Barton and David Brisebois will be the linesmen.

Late dining report: Finally made it to Tampa's Bern Steak House, which the players count among the league's top meat joints. The New York strip didn't disappoint. But the highlight was dessert, which you eat in a separate room. Weird. Won't be forgetting that dulce de leche lava cake anytime soon.
