Rask will face Sabres

BUFFALO Tuukka Rask leads the Bruins out onto the ice and will get the start for Boston after getting yanked from his last game here at the First Niagara Center after giving up three goals on 10 shots. Ryan Miller gets the nod for a Buffalo Sabres team thats begun to turn things around here in February, but stands seven points out of a playoff spot with five teams ahead of them.

Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Lucic-Kelly-Krejci
Paille-Campbell-Thornton
Pouliot-Camper-Caron

Chara-Boychuk
Seidenberg-Corvo
Ference-McQuaid

Rask

Some Patriots kneel, others stand and link arms during national anthem

FOXBORO -- The Patriots took different approaches as the National Anthem played on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Many, including safety and captain Devin McCourty, took a knee. Others stood and linked arms. 

On the opposite sideline, it appeared as though every member of the Texans stood on the sidelines and linked arms. 

Those joining McCourty on a knee included Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler, Lawrence Guy, Johnson Bademosi, Alan Branch, Brandon King, Malcom Brown and rookies Deatrich Wise and Adam Butler. 

Among those linking arms were Tom Brady, Phillip Dorsett, Cassius Marsh, Matthew Slater, David Harris and Dwayne Allen.
