1:30 p.m.: According to reports from morning skate in Philadelphia, Anton Khudobin was the first Bruins goalie off the ice in morning skate, meaning he’ll likely get the start in Philly. This should come as no surprise, either. Tuukka Rask surprisingly started both games this weekend in Boston, and Claude Julien did indicate over the weekend that he would be working in both goaltenders over the final week of the season. So with all of that in mind, it would certainly make sense to go with Khudobin in between the pipes for this one. 1 p.m.: Once again, the Bruins are staring a jam-packed schedule in the face, a four-game slate this week that will see their regular season come to an end. The B’s begin that four-game stretch Tuesday night in Philadelphia where they will take on the lowly Flyers. It’s a part of a stretch of four games in six days for Boston, who has plenty of work to do before the regular season comes to an end Sunday night. If you believe that that the standings still matter, and there’s a large pocket of people who feel it doesn’t matter as much this season, then you would also believe that this is a big week for the Bruins. They enter play Tuesday in a virtual tie for first place in the Northeast Division with Montreal. Both clubs enter play with 59 points, and while the Canadiens hold a 24-23 advantage in regulation wins, the Bruins do have a game in hand. That stretch does begin with a game in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, against a Flyers team that isn’t playing for anything but pride and jobs. That doesn’t necessarily mean success for the Bruins. Just a few weeks ago, they were embarrassed by the Flyers in Philadelphia in one of the Bruins’ worst games of the season. Puck drop for this one is slated for 7:30 p.m.
