Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will host the Senators tonight. The Bruins won the first meeting of the season at Scotiabank Place, 4-0, with Tim Thomas earning the shutout. Thomas should be in goal tonight.
Expect Shawn Thornton to approach Chris Neil sometime early. Neil didn’t make many friends with his late-game scrap with Dennis Seidenberg last month.
Puck drop: 7 p.m.
Record: Senators 8-7-1, Bruins 8-4-1
