Storylines: Thomas, coming off a shutout last Sunday, will make his second straight start tonight, said Claude Julien… The Devils have only one win in five games. “It’s a desperate team here that’s probably lost more games than they’d have liked to at this point,” Julien said. “There’s character in that dressing room. There’s always been a lot of character in that organization. We’re going to be facing a tough opponent tonight.”… The Devils scrubbed their morning skate. The Bruins are going through an optional.
