Morning briefing

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will take on Buffalo in Game 4 tonight. The Bruins have a 2-1 series lead. All-time, the Bruins are 21-8 when they have led, 2-1.

* The Sabres called up Cody McCormick yesterday. McCormick had 17 goals, 12 assists, and 168 penalty minutes in Portland this season. Given McCormick’s resume, tonight’s game might be getting rough.

* Marc Savard, who passed his neuro-psych test yesterday, skated this morning. The Bruins have an optional skate this morning.

* No word yet on whether Matt Ellis, rocked by Johnny Boychuk in Game 3, will play tonight. Thomas Vanek is out.

* Kevin Pollock and Kelly Sutherland will be the referees. Steve Barton and Greg Devorski will be the linesmen.
