Good morning from TD Banknorth Garden, where the Bruins will face off against the Rangers this afternoon. Because there was no morning skate, we'll wait until pre-game warmups to post the expected lineup.

Some tidbits from the game notes:

* Marc Savard brings a six-game scoring streak (4-3--7) into this afternoon.

* Olympic gymnast Alicia Sacramone will drop the first puck. Sacramone is from Winchester.

* The Rangers do not have anyone on injured reserve.

* Some yin-and-yang special-teams performance from the Rangers, who have the league's top penalty kill (87.6 percent) and the fourth-worst power play (14.9 percent).

* Mike Leggo and Mike Hasenfratz will be the referees. Michel Cormier and Mark Shewchyk will be the linesmen.
