Good afternoon from TD Garden, where we know one thing about tonight: There will be handshakes. The Bruins, having blown their opportunity last night to end Montreal’s season, will attempt to turn the trick again tonight.
Neither team had a morning skate. For now, we’ll assume there are no lineup changes for either club.
