Tuukka Rask first off the ice for Bruins, will start Thursday

The Bruins held their morning skate at TD Garden as they prepare for their home opener Thursday night against the Capitals. Tuukka Rask was first off the ice, and confirmed in the locker room afterwards that he will be in net. The lines were the same as they’ve been, so here’s what to expect:
Milan Lucic – David Krejci – Nathan Horton
Jordan Caron – Patrice Bergeron – Blake Wheeler
Mark Recchi – Tyler Seguin – Michael Ryder
Brad Marchand – Gregory Campbell – Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara – Johnny Boychuk
Mark Stuart – Dennis Seidenberg
Matt Hunwick – Andrew Ference
It seems Claude Julien wanted to conceal the starting goalie’s identity, telling a reporter that “you’ll see at 7 o’clock.” If only Rask hadn’t let the cat out of the bag earlier.
“It’s fun,” Rask said after the skate. “It’s been a while since [my] last start, so it should be great.”
