Marco Sturm, who didn't skate this morning, will most likely not be available tonight against Florida. If Sturm can't play, the Bruins will feature the same lineup from Wednesday's 7-4 win over Buffalo.

* The Bruins will unveil their third jersey on Monday at 2 p.m. at the TD Banknorth Garden pro shop. Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, Milan Lucic, Phil Kessel, Marc Savard, Tim Thomas, and Blake Wheeler will be working the counters at the pro shop between 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. They will be available for autographs. The Bruins will wear the third jersey for the first time next Friday against the Islanders.

* Matt Lashoff reports that Zach Hamill is scheduled to play for the first time this weekend for Providence. Hamill has been out the entire year following surgery to repair ligaments in his thumb. Hamill has been skating with the P-Bruins during practice with a large mitten covering his cast, according to Lashoff.

David Krejci
Chuck Kobasew
