COLUMBUS -- Good morning from Nationwide Arena, where the Bruins will face off against the Blue Jackets tonight. Stephane Yelle is not likely to be available tonight, but we'll confirm that with Claude Julien later this morning.

Some tidbits from the game notes:

* Columbus has three players on injured reserve: Derick Brassard, Jason Chimera, and Ole-Kristian Tollefsen.

* Over January, February, and March, the Bruins have recorded only one more point (35) than Columbus (34).

* Columbus has the worst power play in the league (12.8 percent).

* Marc Joanette and Dan Marouelli will be the referees. Ryan Galloway and Jonny Murray will be the linesmen.
