Thomas gets the start, Kampfer in for Ference

PHILADELPHIA With Andrew Ference out of the lineup due to a suspension, the Bruins have paired defenseman Steven Kampfer with Johnny Boychuk while slotting Tim Thomas in as the goaltender against the Flyers. Thomas was the winner Thursday night against the Devils with a solid 30-save effort, and has put up a 1.01 goals against average and a .967 save percentage in two games against the Flyers this season.

Ilya Bryzgalov gets the start for the Flyers between the pipes while they attempt to battle through injuries to Chris Pronger, James van Riemsdyk and Daniel Briere, among others.
