BOSTON -- The end of the preseason is finally here, and fans who are headed to tonight's exhibition finale against Columbus at TD Garden will get a glimpse at what the 2009-10 Boston Bruins will look like on opening night in five days.

There is even a slight chance that recovering center David Krejci (hip surgery) and ailing wingers Marco Sturm (groin) and Steve Begin (lower body) could be in uniform against the Blue Jackets. Tuukka Rask will get the start in net after Tim Thomas started the last two nights in wins over Montreal and Ottawa.

Here's a look at the Bruins' roster for tonight's game, with Krejci, Sturm and Begin classified as game-night decisions:

Begin, Patrice Bergeron, Byron Bitz, Chuck Kobasew, Zach Hamill, Krejci, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, Mark Recchi, Michael Ryder, Marc Savard, Vladimir Sobotka, Sturm, Shawn Thornton, Blake Wheeler

Johnny Boychuk, Zdeno Chara, Andrew Ference, Matt Hunwick, Derek Morris, Mark Stuart, Dennis Wideman (healthy scratch will be determined at game time)

Rask, Thomas
