Game 80: Penguins at Bruins

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight. The Bruins have three regular-season games remaining before the playoffs start next week.

Anton Khudobin is present for the morning skate. Khudobin was recalled yesterday and could see action on Saturday against Buffalo.

Adam McQuaid (eye) is skating with a visor. McQuaid does not usually wear a shield.

Jordan Caron is not present. Caron took a Zdeno Chara shot off the right foot in the first period of Sunday’s 2-1 win over the Rangers.

Puck drop: 7:30 p.m.

Storylines: If Caron can’t play tonight, Rich Peverley should skate on the first line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci. The Bruins continue to search for the right fit to fill Nathan Horton’s usual spot on the right side… No truth to the rumor Dan Bylsma will coach while wearing a skirt. Mike Milbury took a shot at Bylsma for not getting in Peter Laviolette’s face at the end of Sunday’s Pittsburgh-Philadelphia tilt… Marc Joannette and Paul Devorski will be the referees. Brad Kovachik and Brad Lazarowich will be the linesmen.
