A little more than a half-hour to go before puck down between the Bruins and Devils here at the Rock.

The two clubs are just about to hit the ice for the pre-game warmup. Anton Khudobin in net for the Bruins. Otherwise, coach Claude Julien to go with the same lineup that pasted the Canes, 6-2, Monday night at the Garden.

''If it stops working,'' said Julien, ''we'll make changes.''
