Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins have started their practice.

David Krejci is not present. At the end of Game 1, Krejci was flattened by a pane of glass jarred loose by celebrating fans. Krejci was also clipped in the face by Jay Beagle in the first period.

UPDATE: Krejci said his neck is sore. He expects to play in Game 2. Claude Julien acknowledged the team dodged a bullet.

Jordan Caron is practicing on the first line. Rich Peverley is in Krejci’s center position.

Today’s lineup:

Milan Lucic-Rich Peverley-Jordan Caron
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Benoit Pouliot-Chris Kelly-Brian Rolston
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
Andrew Ference-Johnny Boychuk
Greg Zanon-Joe Corvo
Mike Mottau

Tim Thomas
Anton Khudobin
Tuukka Rask
