BUFFALO — Bruins coach Claude Julien  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  about concussed forward Nathan Horton .
Julien revealed Wednesday night’s starting goaltender, saying that Tuukka Rask  will be between the pipes for the B’s against the Sabres.
Rask is third in the NHL  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  still on the third line between Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron.
