Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will host the Wild tonight. Hopefully it won't be a similar game to the Minnesota-New Jersey tilt from a few nights ago, when the snores were audible around North America.

We might know more after the morning skate, but we'll assume that Tuukka Rask will get another start tonight. Also, Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin should both take shifts at center on the No. 2 line.

Puck drop: 7 p.m.

Record: Wild 19-15-5, Bruins 21-11-6

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

Projected lineup:

Milan Lucic-Marc Savard-Nathan Horton
Mark Recchi-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Blake Wheeler-David Krejci-Michael Ryder
Brad Marchand-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg-Steven Kampfer
Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid

Tuukka Rask
Tim Thomas

Healthy scratches: Daniel Paille

Storylines: This will be the first game at the Garden for ex-Bruin Chuck Kobasew since he was shipped to Minnesota early last season... Trent Whitfield should clear waivers at noon today... Wes McCauley and Dean Morton will be the referees. Brian Murphy and Mark Shewchyk will be the linesmen.
