12:31 p.m.: The Bruins and Capitals just took the ice for warmups. Anton Khudobin led the Bruins out, and Michael Neuvirth led the Capitals out, so those will be your starting goaltenders. 12:10 p.m.: Good afternoon and welcome to TD Garden where the Bruins are an hour away from getting going with the Washington Capitals. It’s going to be a gametime decision for Claude Julien on who is goaltender is for this one. Well, actually, the decision has probably been made already. The Bruins head coach wasn’t in the mood to divulge that information when meeting with the media just a little while ago. We’ll learn who the starting goalie is momentarily once the club takes the ice for pregame warmups. When they do that, they’ll be wearing their green jerseys for St. Patrick’s Day. They’ll be wearing those for warmups only, however, as they’ll switch to their alternate third jerseys for the game. 8 a.m. ET: The Bruins owe the Capitals. They’ll get their chance to exact some revenge Saturday afternoon. The Bruins open their second back-to-back of their busiest week of the season on Saturday when Washington visits TD Garden for the first time this season. Boston will be looking for revenge for one of their worst losses of the season. Claude Julien’s bunch had one of their worst games of the season just 11 days ago when they blew a three-goal lead after one period. The Caps battled back to erase the deficit before winning it in overtime on a gorgeous Eric Fehr goal just 37 seconds into overtime. The B’s are desperately looking for a better effort. They’ve hit something of a lull in the middle of the most grueling part of their schedule. Just about everyone who spoke following the club’s win over the Panthers on Thursday said they need to be better moving forward, and Saturday will be the first chance to right that ship. Puck drop from the Garden is set for 1 p.m.
