Bruins likely to see line changes

With only one point in their last two games, the Bruins are in line for some tweaks in Thursday night’s home game against Toronto.

Anton Khudobin was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, indicating he will start against the Maple Leafs. Tuukka Rask dropped his last two starts.


Claude Julien praised the fourth line of Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell, and Shawn Thornton. Julien said in Tuesday’s loss at Washington, they played one of their best games in the last year and a half.

Julien hasn’t been as happy with the No. 3 line, primarily Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley. Neither of the forwards has played well at both ends of the ice.
