UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Good afternoon from Nassau Coliseum, where the Bruins will attempt to snap their three-game winless streak tonight against the Islanders.

Claude Julien said he didn't anticipate any lineup changes from last night. If that stands, Tim Thomas will be in goal and Tyler Seguin will be the healthy scratch. Seguin and Tuukka Rask are the only players on the ice. All other players went through off-ice workouts and meetings.

Puck drop: 7 p.m.

Record: Bruins 38-20-9, Islanders 26-32-10

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

Projected lineup:

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Rich Peverley
Mark Recchi-Chris Kelly-Michael Ryder
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Tomas Kaberle-Adam McQuaid
Matt Bartkowski-Dennis Seidenberg

Tim Thomas
Tuukka Rask

Healthy scratch: Tyler Seguin

Storylines: Andrew Ference, Shane Hnidy, and Steven Kampfer didn't make the road trip. Julien said Ference and Hnidy skated together at Ristuccia Arena. Julien hadn't gotten a report yet on Kampfer, who experienced a setback on Wednesday... The Bruins will start the night with the 20th-ranked power play. They are 0 for 19 in their last eight games... Mark Recchi will tie Dave Andreychuk for fifth place on the all-time games played list (1,639)... Mike Leggo and Ian Walsh will be the referees. Shane Heyer and Steve Miller will be the linesmen.
