providence_bruins_logo_0809PROVIDENCE — The Providence Bruins are hosting the first-place Hartford Wolf  Pack tonight at Dunkin’ Donuts Center. The puck drops at 7 p.m.

Providence, second in the Atlantic Division, can clinch a playoff berth with a win. They can also clinch with a regulations loss by Worcester or Manchester. There’s another scenario too, but let’s keep things simple.

Here is the P-Bruins’ lineup, as per warm-ups:

Sobotka-St. Pierre-MacDonald
Marchand-Rabbit-Reich
Schaefer-Hamill-Lehtonen
Lukacevic-Ryder-Knackstedt

Stephenson-McQuaid
Penner-Boychuk
Bartley-Reul

Rask

Providence is still without Ryan Stokes, Andrew Bodnarchuk and Kevin Schaeffer on the back end. Back-up goaltender Kevin Regan is now out for the season with a labrum injury, so Kevin Nastiuk will fill his spot.
