It's a fairly quiet morning here at TD Garden as the Bruins prepare to face the Devils at 7 p.m.

The Bruins are fresh off their 5-3 win Monday night over the Hurricanes in Raleigh, and this is their first encounter with back-to-back games in the lockout-shortened season.

Look for Tuukka Rask in net for Boston, following Anton Khudobin's debut Monday night. According to coach Claude Julien, none of his charges suffered an injury in the win at Raleigh, meaning all hands are on deck and available for duty against the ever-diligent Devils.

"They always play a heavy game," said Julien, referring to the Devils.

Chris Bourque has yet to collect a point in his five games with the Spoked-B, but Julien believes the Son of Seventy-Seven is getting better each and every game. Julien also thinks the play of Bourque's linemates, Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley, could be sharper, which could help Bourque get his production going.

We'll be back here soon with the regular day-of-game report.
