Tuukka Rask to start for vs. Penguins; Milan Lucic, Andrew Ference out

Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] told reporters prior to Saturday’s game against the Penguins [2] that Tuukka Rask [3] will start for the B’s. Rask’s last start came against the Penguins, as he earned a win in the Bruins’ 4-2 come-from-behind victory in Pittsburgh on Monday.

Milan Lucic [4] will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury, while Andrew Ference [5] will miss his first game of the season due to an upper-body injury. Ference, who played in the team’s first 43 games, left Thursday’s 7-5 victory over Philadelphia after the second period. Rookie Matt Bartkowski, who was called up from Providence on an emergency basis Friday, is expected to play in his place.

Bartkowski made his NHL [6] debut on Monday in Pittsburgh, posting a minus-1 in 9:53 of ice time. He was filling in for Adam McQuaid and was returned to Providence the following day.
