Starting lineups
The Flyers and Bruins both skated today at TD Garden ahead of tonight's game (7 p.m. ET, Versus). Here's how their lineups could look tonight based on the lines and defense pairings at today's practice:

BRUINS
Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Rich Peverley
Jordan Caron/Benoit Pouliot-Chris Kelly-Tyler Seguin
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Andrew Ference-Joe Corvo
Dennis Seidenberg-Matt Bartkowski

Tim Thomas will start in goal with Tuukka Rask backing him up.

The defense pairings could change if Adam McQuaid plays tonight. He's been battling a flu bug and will be a game-time decision. If McQuaid is able to play, he would replace Bartkowski in the lineup, but not necessarily play with Seidenberg.

FLYERS
Jakub Voracek-Danny Briere-Wayne Simmonds
James van Riemsdyk-Claude Giroux-Jaromir Jagr
Scott Hartnell-Sean Couturier-Matt Read
Zac Rinaldo-Maxime Talbot-Andreas Nodl

Chris Pronger-Matt Carle
Kimmo Timonen-Andrej Meszaros
Braydon Coburn-Andreas Lilja

Ilya Bryzgalov will start in goal, with Sergei Bobrovsky backing him up.

The Flyers' defense pairings also could change if the team opts to play Matt Walker tonight in place of Lilja. Walker did not practice this morning, but there were hints that Walker could be in the lineup.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
