Notes from Wilmo...
OK folks, had to run to Connecticut after practice today, so this will be a bare-bones blog. They’ll be plenty more tomorrow morning and throughout Saturday, so thanks for bearing with me.

The Good, the Bad
Following the Bruins comeback win versus Toronto last night, it was a happy locker room in Wilmington today.

Wayne Primeau, Tim Thomas and P.J. Axelsson did not practice and not seeing Wayne or Tim gave me a little pause. Primeau and Thomas are fine, however and were just given the day off.

Head Coach Dave Lewis said that Thomas will start again tomorrow. Unfortunately, P.J. is still not up to snuff and will not play versus New Jersey.

Toivo, Finner and Z
Goaltenders Hannu Toivonen and Brian Finley were both in decent form this afternoon and successfully stifled many of their teammates shots. One save in particular seemed to impress Marc Savard who smacked Toivonen on the pads after the young Finn stopped him.

With Primeau out, Chara was given another ’chance’ at center and he joked afterward that the move was not permanent because he "did not want to embarrass" anyone with his fine play on the forward line.

But, he then suddenly turned to one of the goalies and good naturedly ribbed him because he had scored on him a couple of times during the session.

The goalie just took it all in stride and did not seem fazed.

Big ’Z’ just smiled.

Jeff Hoggan remained in Boston, and was still on the line with Phil Kessel and Stan Chistov. Jeff was very happy to be there and said he thought he might get sent down again because of a Providence game this evening.

Nope.

He practiced with the team and looks to be playing with Boston tomorrow.

For the first time in a while it seemed as if we had a full compliment of D-men on the ice.

Paul Mara did not have to miss any time today and said he felt fine after coming back to the lineup last night.

We almost lost a defenseman, however, when an errant puck smacked Andrew Alberts in the teeth. He was none-the-worse-for-wear though, and said, that besides a loose tooth or two, no harm was done.

Have a great night
Ok, I feel better now. You have the starter and the injury report.

Enjoy the BruinsCast with Cam Neely and Troy Brown -- I talked with them last night. It was just posted on the lower half of the front page in the Multimedia section here on BostonBruins.com.
