* Claude Julien reiterated that tomorrow’s lineup will be closer to the Bruins’ final roster. That spells good things for Jordan Caron and Tyler Seguin, neither of whom will play tonight. Both deserve to make the big club based on their play and potential.

* Jeff LoVecchio, Jeremy Reich, and Wyatt Smith were recalled from Providence and will play tonight. Obviously, Reich and Smith cleared waivers.

* Julien said there’s a good chance Tim Thomas will make his preseason debut tomorrow at TD Garden. Thomas participated in the second session today along with the players who will not travel to Washington.


* The Bruins have returned Ryan Spooner to his junior team and assigned Jamie Arniel to Providence. They have 28 players remaining. Expect one or two more cuts prior to their departure, with Matt Bartkowski, Joe Colborne, and Steve Kampfer among the possibilities.
