A few notes at the start of tonight’s Bruins game against the Tampa Bay Lightning [1]:

Bruins bruiser Shawn Thornton [2] will miss tonight’s game with an undisclosed injury. It’s the first game that Thornton has missed this season. Byront Bitz has taken Thornton’s place on the fourth line after serving as a healthy scratch since a March 15 game against the Pittsburgh Penguins [3].

Goaltender Manny Fernandez [4] gets another start in net, which surprised some pundits after the netminder’s shaky performance early in Saturday night’s goal-fest victory in Toronto.
