WILMINGTON — Good morning from Ristuccia Arena, where the Bruins are revving through their final tuneup prior to their departure for Newark. Could be some white-knuckle flying today, given the winds that are blowing around here.
The Bruins went through their shootout drill today, with nine gunners going against Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask: Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin, David Krejci, Nathan Horton, Blake Wheeler, Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi, Brad Marchand, and Zdeno Chara.
Same lines as the last two days.
* The Devils will get some cap relief by placing Brian Rolston (hernia surgery) on long-term injured reserve. However, the Devils are still reeling from injuries. Tonight against Colorado, according to the Newark Star-Ledger, they’ll be without Rolston, Anton Volchenkov (nose), Mark Fraser (hand), and Bryce Salvador (concussion). Since dressing only 15 players against Pittsburgh on Monday, New Jersey has added Adam Mair, Jacob Josefson, Tim Sestito, and Matt Corrente.
