Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will look to stop their two-game skid tonight against New Jersey. Tonight is Military Appreciation Night. Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart have purchased $5,000 worth of tickets for local military troops.
The Bruins are going through an optional morning skate, so we can only guess at tonight’s lineup. Expect Tim Thomas to get the start.
Puck drop: 7 p.m.
Record: Devils 5-10-2, Bruins 8-5-1
