Storylines: Rich Peverley is not expected to play tonight because of a personal matter. Peverley should be available on Thursday against New Jersey, when the Bruins conclude their four-game roadie… Should be interesting to see how Nathan Horton responds tonight. Claude Julien had pointed words for Horton after last night’s flat-line performance. Horton needs to play with bite to be effective… The Lightning have yet to win in 2012… The Bruins juggled their defensive pairings last night. Adam McQuaid saw time with Dennis Seidenberg. By game’s end, Seidenberg was with Zdeno Chara… The Bruins have an optional morning skate… Eric Furlatt and Brad Meier will be the referees. Steve Miller and Mark Shewchyk will be the linesmen.
