Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will look to take a 3-0 series lead over the Flyers tonight.

Adam McQuaid is not on the ice for the morning skate. McQuaid was diagnosed with a sprained neck. If McQuaid can't play, Shane Hnidy will dress tonight for the second time in the postseason.

No word on the availability of Chris Pronger tonight. Given the tight-lipped nature of the playoffs regarding injuries, it's doubtful the Flyers will issue any notice on Pronger's status until later today, if at all.

Puck drop: 7 p.m.

Record: Flyers 0-2, Bruins 2-0

TV/radio info: Versus, 98.5 The Sports Hub (Dave Goucher, Bob Beers)

Projected Bruins lineup:

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

Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
Andrew Ference-Johnny Boychuk
Tomas Kaberle-Shane Hnidy

Tim Thomas
Tuukka Rask

Healthy scratches: Tyler Seguin

Projected Flyers lineup:

Dan Carcillo-Mike Richards-Kris Versteeg
Ville Leino-Danny Briere-Scott Hartnell
James van Riemsdyk-Claude Giroux-Nikolay Zherdev
Darroll Powe-Blair Betts-Jody Shelley

Danny Syvret-Matt Carle
Kimmo Timonen-Braydon Coburn
Andrej Meszaros-Sean O'Donnell

Brian Boucher
Sergei Bobrovsky

Healthy scratches: Zac Rinaldo

Storylines: James van Riemsdyk has six goals in his last five games. Hard to believe van Riemsdyk could be better tonight than he was in Game 2. That said, Tim Thomas was even better than VarsityR... The Bruins are 0 for 28 on the power play... Dan O'Halloran and Derek Amell will be the referees. Brad Watson and Jean Morin will be the linesmen.
