Morning briefing


Jim Davis/Globe Staff

The Bruins will wear their outdoor game uniforms indoors today.

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will host the streaking Senators, winners of five straight, this afternoon.

  • Marc Savard (knee), Marco Sturm (leg), Steve Begin (undisclosed), and Byron Bitz (undisclosed) will not play today. While there’s a slim chance Savard could dress tomorrow against Carolina, it’s more likely that he’ll return next Friday against Buffalo.
  • The Bruins will wear their Winter Classic jerseys today.
  • The Senators have the worst power play in the league (15.4 percent). The Bruins have the league’s second-best penalty kill (87.6 percent).
  • Kelly Sutherland and Marc Joannette will be the referees. Michel Cormier and David Brisebois will be the linesmen.

UPDATE: Savard and Bitz skated on their own earlier today. None of the four injured players will play tomorrow or travel with the team to Carolina.
