WASHINGTON — Good morning from the Verizon Center, where the Bruins will face off against the winners of the Presidents Trophy tonight. Because San Jose lost last night, Washington will have home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs.
* Adam McQuaid has been brought up on an emergency basis. McQuaid hasn’t dressed since before the Olympic break because of an upper-body injury. Dennis Seidenberg is planning to skate this morning, but if he can’t play, then McQuaid will be in the lineup. McQuaid could also replace Andrew Bodnarchuk.
* Tonight’s game will be on Versus.
* Steve Kozari and Bill McCreary will be the referees. Brad Lazarowich and Steve Miller will be the linesmen.
