Thomas to get the start vs. Maple Leafs

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Bruins opted for a full morning skate after a day off from practice on Sunday, and there's a full complement of B's skaters readying for the Monday night tilt against the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden.

All 12 starting forwards hopped onto the ice for line drills and the eight B's defensemen took shifts on the frozen sheet.

Tim Thomas was the first goaltender off the ice and will be making his 13th straight appearance against the Leafs. Tonight will be his 11th start during that span.

The lines appeared as they have recently for the Bruins:

Celtics' team plane receives bomb threat

BOSTON -- There was a bomb threat to the Boston Celtics’ team plane to Oklahoma City on Saturday afternoon, but no one was injured.

The incident will be investigated by NBA security which will work in conjunction with the FBI on this matter which was one of several hoaxes called into airports across the country on Saturday.

News of the bomb threat was first known when Celtics forward Jae Crowder posted an Instagram photo showing players departing the plane with the caption, “BOMB THREAT ON US”.

Celtics officials declined to comment on the matter and instead referred all bomb threat-related questions to the league office.

Messages to the league office were not immediately returned.
