WINNIPEG The Bruins are going according to the plan expected when Tuukka Rask got the final home start backstopping the Bruins to a 4-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs last weekend. The Bs youngster is getting the call between the pipes against the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre and will look to improve on 4-3-1 record and 2.09 goals against average and .924 save percentage that are creeping up the ranks.

Ondrej Pavelec is in goal for the Jets countering Rask, and fared pretty well against the Bruins in the two teams first matchup in Boston several weeks ago. No expected chances in a Bs lineup thats gone nuclear with a 14-0-1 record over their last 15 games, but could be headed for a letdown after Monday nights emotional win in Pittsburgh.

Here are the lines:

Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Lucic-Krejci-Horton
Pouliot-Kelly-Peverley
Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Boychuk
Seidenberg-Corvo
McQuaid-Ference

Rask
Thomas
