PHILADELPHIA – Good morning from the Wells Fargo Center, where the Bruins will start a four-game stretch over six days against the Flyers tonight.

Nathan Horton (upper body) will not play. Horton is back in Boston. Horton was injured during a fight with Jarome Iginla last Saturday.

For now, we’ll assume Anton Khudobin will start in goal. Khudobin backed up Tuukka Rask the last two games.

Puck drop: 7:30 p.m.

TV/radio info: NBC Sports Network (Mike Emrick, Ed Olczyk, Pierre McGuire),98.5 The Sports Hub (Dave Goucher, Bob Beers)

Projected Bruins lineup:

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Rich Peverley
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Chris Kelly-Carl Soderberg-Jaromir Jagr
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Storylines: This could be the final road game for some of the veterans. Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron will most likely stay home instead of traveling to Washington on Saturday. The Bruins have enough depth to rest their key players before the playoffs begin … The Flyers will pay tribute to the Boston Marathon victims tonight. Proceeds from tonight’s 50-50 raffle will go to the One Fund Boston. The Flyers’ jerseys will be auctioned off to benefit the One Fund… Chris Lee and Tim Peel will be the referees. Michel Cormier and Derek Nansen will be the linesmen.
