Morning briefing

MONTREAL — Good morning from the Bell Centre, where the Bruins will play the Canadiens tonight. Only two points separate the seventh- and eighth-place clubs, so tonight will be a critical game for both teams.

* Expect Tuukka Rask to make his second straight start tonight.

* Maxim Lapierre will return to the Montreal lineup tonight. Lapierre has served his four-game suspension for hitting Scott Nichol.

* Dennis LaRue and Francois St-Laurent will be the referees. Jean Morin and Mark Shewchyk will be the linesmen.
