Good morning from TD Banknorth Garden, where the Bruins will take an 11-game home winning streak into tonight's showdown against Toronto.

Some tidbits from the game notes:

* Marco Sturm has been taken off long-term injured reserve, indicating that he may be ready to play tonight. Sturm last played on Nov. 17 against the Leafs.

* Phil Kessel is in the middle of a 15-game scoring streak, the longest by a Bruin since Adam Oates (20) in 1997.

* Today will be the first time the Bruins play the Leafs under new GM Brian Burke.

* Toronto has the 28th-best PK in the league (77.5 percent).

* Paul Devorski and Gord Dwyer will be the referees. Scott Driscoll and Darren Gibbs will be the linesmen.
