Seen and heard last night at FleetCenter in Boston.

ALMOST LIKE HOME — The Caps are 35-62-20-1 against the Bruins. The biggest chunk of that negative ledger came during 21 seasons at old Boston Garden. Washington was 8-25-4 there, including a pair of losses in the 1990 Eastern Conference finals. During the first nine years of FleetCenter’s existence, the Caps are 10-8-4, including three victories in the first round of the 1998 playoffs.

REMEMBER ME? — Injured Caps defenseman John Gruden began his 11-year pro career with seven games at the end of the 1993-1994 season for the Bruins. Gruden played in 52 games for Boston the next two seasons before spending the following two years in the minors. The only current Bruin who played with Gruden in Boston is right wing Glen Murray.

VISITING PINEY — The Caps’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Portland Pirates, practiced yesterday at Piney Orchard on their way to today’s game at Norfolk.

LEND A HAND — The Caps are asking fans who attend tomorrow’s game against Florida at MCI Center to bring a warm, clean winter coat for donation to local charities.
