BOSTON -- The Pittsburgh Penguins are in the building, and Marc-Andre Fleury gets the call for a Pens squad that's missing their two best players in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

Tim Thomas led the Bruins out for warm-ups, indicating that he'll make the start tonight at the TD Garden.

The Bruins are missing two players of their own. Defenseman Steve Kampfer will miss at least a week with a mild concussion, and center Patrice Bergeron has left the team to attend to a personal issue.

Defenseman Matt Bartkowski has been called up from Providence, and will be in the lineup for Boston, while rookie Tyler Seguin will take Bergeron's spot in the lineup, and will skate on the third line.

Here's how the rest of the Bruins' lines look, according to pregame warm-ups:
