BUFFALO — Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] doesn’t usually flat-out say which goaltender will start that night’s game, but he made an exception a day after declaring he would not answer any more questions [2] about concussed forward Nathan Horton [3].

Julien revealed Wednesday night’s starting goaltender, saying that Tuukka Rask [4] will be between the pipes for the B’s against the Sabres.

Rask is third in the NHL [5] in both save percentage (.936) and goals-against average (1.88), but has not won any of his last three starts (0-2-1). His last victory came on Jan. 16 against the Panthers in Florida.

The team’s forward lines remained the same as they were in Tuesday’s practice, with David Krejci [6] still on the third line between Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron.
