Tim Thomas should be in goal for the Bruins. It’s possible Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg could be reunited.

UPDATE: Claude Julien confirms Joe Corvo will be a healthy scratch.

Trent Whitfield was recalled this morning on an emergency basis. All 12 forwards practiced on Friday.

Storylines: The Bruins are seven points ahead of ninth-place Winnipeg. A postseason berth is no guarantee, given how the Bruins have taken the pipe lately… Ottawa could be three points ahead of the Bruins by the end of the day. Ottawa hosts Toronto tonight… No chance for the Bruins to knock on Tom Sestito’s door in response to his hit on Nathan Horton on Jan. 22. Sestito is out because of a groin injury… Dave Jackson and Francois St. Laurent will be the referees. Derek Amell and Brad Kovachik will be the linesmen.
