With the Canadiens in town for Game 1, there's only one thing to do: play soccer. After two straight days of practice in anticipation of the playoffs, the B's held an optional skate Thursday morning, with the rest of the players getting loose with some hallway soccer. Tuukka Rask, Anton Khudobin, Shane Hnidy, Tyler Seguin, Michael Ryder, Gregory Campbell, Chris Kelly and Matt Bartkowski participated in the skate. From the goes-without-saying department, expect Tim Thomas between the pipes and Tyler Seguin to be the healthy scratch. We'll have more from the Bruins and Canadiens dressing rooms after each team has its morning availability.
