While the media tries to figure out just why such mixed signals were sent Thursday morning, Tim Thomas  was the first onto the ice for the Bruins in warmups, meaning he’ll get the nod in net for the B’s, his fourth straight start.
Rask was the first off the ice in practice and spoke to the media after practice about his excitement to get the start. Claude Julien , meanwhile, told the media that, “you’ll see at 7.” Thomas has started the last three games for the Bruins, allowing two goals over a span in which the B’s picked up three straight wins.
Expect the same lines for the Bruins:
Matt Hunwick – Andrew Ference 
Tuukka Rask
