Tonight at TD Garden, the Bruins will open against the New York Rangers. Both teams project to be among the NHL’s strongest clubs.

The teams will have a rematch next Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.

“Let’s go at it,” Claude Julien said. “We go at it again on Wednesday. There’s no issue from my end of it. I’ve always said you control what you can control. The schedule is made, then you go with it.”

Dougie Hamilton will make his NHL debut tonight. Hamilton will wear No. 27, his number from junior. Hamilton had been wearing No. 53 in camp.

“What he’s got to do is gain some experience,” Julien said. “That will only come with time. I think we all know he’s got the size. We all know he can move the puck well. We all know he skates well. We all know he’s got great hockey sense. So where’s his weakness? I don’t think he has a weakness, more than the only weakness that he has is his lack of experience. We’ve got to allow him to get that.”

* Lane MacDermid and David Warsofsky will be the healthy scratches.
