Morning briefing

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will host the Thrashers tonight before the two-day Christmas break.

  • The Thrashers are no strangers to offense. Top gun Ilya Kovalchuk has four goals and six assists in his last seven games. Underrated D-man Tobias Enstrom has an 0-9–9 line in the last six games.
  • Derek Morris (undisclosed) will not play tonight.
  • This will be Claude Julien’s 200th game as Bruins coach.
  • Stephane Auger and Chris Rooney will be the referees. Brian Murphy and Tony Sericolo will be the linesmen.
