Tim Thomas was the first goalie off the ice this morning, indicating he will start tonight.

* There's a good possibility Aaron Ward will play tonight after missing the last four games with an ankle injury. Ward will participate in pre-game warmups and will be a game-time decision. If Ward plays, Matt Lashoff will most likely be the healthy scratch.

* Marco Sturm (neck) will not play.

* Vladimir Sobotka has been shifted from emergency recall to standard recall.

Tonight's expected lineup, pending Ward's return:

Milan Lucic
Marc Savard
Phil Kessel
P.J. Axelsson
Patrice Bergeron
Chuck Kobasew
Blake Wheeler
David Krejci
Michael Ryder
Petteri Nokelainen
Stephane Yelle
Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara
Aaron Ward
Matt Hunwick
Dennis Wideman
Mark Stuart
Shane Hnidy
Tim Thomas
Manny Fernandez
