Morning briefing

The Bruins will attempt to halt their 1-8-1 slump tonight at TD Garden against the Kings, winners of four straight and six of their last seven. The Bruins will not have a morning skate today, as there is an indoor lacrosse game at the Garden this afternoon.

  • Los Angeles has won its last five road games. The Kings are 3-0-0 on their current five-game road trip. The Bruins have lost their last five Garden games.
  • Steve Begin could return to the lineup tonight. Begin has been sidelined because of a lower-body injury. Marco Sturm is doubtful for tonight.
  • Don VanMassenhoven and Eric Furlatt will be the referees. David Brisebois and Jonny Murray will be the linesmen.
