Tuukka Rask could get his fourth straight start tonight. Anton Khudobin would then see his first action of the season on Monday against Carolina. Or Claude Julien could give Rask a rest and tab Khudobin.
Dennis Seidenberg (lower body) hasn’t played in the last two games.

Storylines: The Islanders blew seven goals past the Maple Leafs last night. Then again, given Toronto’s goaltending, it’s not exactly breaking news when they give up a seven-spot… Michael Grabner leads the Islanders with three goals and two assists… The Bruins are 14 for 14 on the penalty kill… The Bruins will have a day off on Saturday. They are scheduled to practice on Sunday before leaving for Raleigh… Jack Capuano coached his first game of the season last night. Capuano missed the first two games because of kidney stones… Kyle Rehman and Wes McCauley will be the referees. Brian Murphy and Derek Amell will be the linesmen.
