BOSTON — Tuukka Rask will get the start in goal this afternoon for the Bruins against Pittsburgh at TD Garden.
Rask’s last start was a 4-2 win over the Penguins on the road last Monday. With 25 saves on 27 shots, Rask kept the Bruins in the game before they erupted for four goals in the third period to rally from two goals down. He has won two of his last three starts.
Head coach Claude Julien confirmed that Milan Lucic and Andrew Ference will miss today’s game due to injury. Lucic, however, skated this morning. Rookie Matt Bartkowski, who was recalled on an emergency basis from Providence (AHL), will be in the lineup for the second time this week.
