Tim Thomas will start in goal against the Avalanche tonight.

* Claude Julien scrubbed the morning skate. Only Andrew Alberts, Petteri Nokelainen, and Manny Fernandez are on the ice.

* The last time the Bruins cancelled their morning skate was before Game 1 against Montreal, which the Bruins lost by a 4-1 score.

* Looks like Patrice Bergeron will be the only alternate captain tonight. Will get confirmation on that before the game.

Because there was no skate, here’s a guess at tonight’s lineup:

P.J. Axelsson
Marc Savard
Michael Ryder
Marco Sturm
Patrice Bergeron
Phil Kessel
Blake Wheeler
David Krejci
Chuck Kobasew
Milan Lucic
Stephane Yelle
Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara
Aaron Ward
Andrew Ference
Dennis Wideman
Mark Stuart
Shane Hnidy
Tim Thomas
Manny Fernandez
