Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will begin their Stanley Cup defense tonight against Philadelphia. The Bruins will raise their 2010-11 championship banner before the game.
As for the game, we’ll assume that Adam McQuaid will play. McQuaid missed yesterday’s practice and part of Tuesday’s session because of a virus. If McQuaid can’t dress, Matt Bartkowski would be in the lineup.
