Those excited to finally hear that Milan Lucic , David Krejci , and Nathan Horton  skated on a line in Friday morning’s practice are in luck. Same goes for those gushing about the PPF (past, present, future — stick tap to ESPNBoston’s Joe MacDonald  on the name) line consisting of 42 year old Mark Recchi  and 18 year old Tyler Seguin  with Patrice Bergeron , 25, in the middle. Claude Julien  indicated that the lines from the earlier of the team’s two sessions will likely be the same ones that take the ice Saturday night at the Garden against the Panthers.
“Our lineups should be pretty close to what you saw this morning in the first group,” Julien said Friday. “So if you took note of that, that’s pretty close. I always say that because tomorrow morning something may happen or we might make a change here or there. But what you saw in the first group is, if everything goes according to how it should, it should be pretty close team for tomorrow.”
Chiarelli also said that Tim Thomas , who practiced on Friday, will not be in net for the Bruins. By process of elimination, expect Tuukka Rask , the only other goalie in the first group Friday, to get the start.
