WINNIPEG After getting an off night against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday, goaltender Tuukka Rask is back in the saddle against the Winnipeg Jets after hopping onto the ice as the first Bruins skater for pregame warm-ups at the MTS Centre. Rask is 6-1-2 with a 2.07 goals against average and a .919 save percentage this season for the Black and Gold.

Hell be opposed by Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec, who had one of his best games of the season in a shootout loss to the Jets earlier this season.

Milan Lucic is out of the lineup for personal reasons, and 38-year-old free agent signee Jay Pandolfo will be making his Boston Bruins debut before the team he grew up rooting for in Burlington, Mass. Pandolfo will join the fourth line in Sundays game, and the rest of the forward lineup will be a little scrambled with Rich Peverley filling into Milan Lucics vacant spot. Here are the expected forward lines and defense pairings for Sundays game against the Jets:

Peverley-Krejci-Horton
Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Paille-Kelly-Bourque
Pandolfo-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Boychuk
Seidenberg-Hamilton
Ference-McQuaid
