NOTEWORTHY

Bruins G Manny Fernandez, who had been out with a back injury, dressed as the backup to Tim Thomas last night in Philadelphia ... Not all the news is bad for the Senators. The club has killed 26-of-28 power plays in the last six games ... The coaching change was good for RW Chris Neil. He played a season-high 15:30 in the 1-0 loss to the Kings Tuesday ... Captain Daniel Alfredsson's penalty in the third period vs. the Kings gave him 401 career PIMs, tying him with Radek Bonk for ninth in franchise history ... D Jason Smith is seven games from 1,000 in his career ... The Bruins' first power-play unit looks pretty good: Phil Kessel, Milan Lucic, Marc Savard, Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara ... Expect G Brian Elliott to start tonight.
