Game 6 preview: Blackhawks at Bruins

Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will try to send the series to Game 7 in Chicago on Wednesday. The Stanley Cup will be present tonight. The Bruins do not want to see it awarded on home ice.

It is unknown whether Patrice Bergeron (undisclosed injury) will be available tonight. Bergeron spent part of Saturday in a Chicago hospital. On Sunday, Claude Julien termed Bergeron as day-to-day. For now, we’ll assume Bergeron is in tonight.

Puck drop: 8 p.m.

Storylines: Jonathan Toews was limited in Game 5 after taking a wicked wallop from Johnny Boychuk. Joel Quenneville said Toews was feeling better Sunday. We’ll assume that Toews will be in tonight’s lineup … The Bruins might have to break up the Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg pairing again tonight. The two were split for Saturday’s third period. While they haven’t been totally at fault for the goals against, the results have been awful… Wes McCauley and Dan O’Halloran will be the referees. Pierre Racicot and Jay Sharrers will be the linesmen.
