BOSTON — Just nine Boston Bruins skaters, plus the two goaltenders, took part in the club’s morning skate at TD Garden in preparation for tonight’s game against Anaheim.

The Ducks dropped a 6-0 decision to the Bruins here last season and blew a 3-0 lead in an overtime loss Tuesday night, so they should be particularly prickly tonight agains the Bruins, who are looking to win their second straight.

Mustache sighting: Anaheim tough guy George Parros and the league’s best upper-lip hair came out to chat with former teammate Shawn Thornton.

Update: Tim Thomas was the first goaltender off for Boston and Jonas Hiller for Anaheim.
