After Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Wild, Claude Julien did a bit of tinkering with the lines in practice on Friday. According to multiple reports out of Wilmington, here is how the lines looked:

 

Lucic-Savard-Ryder 

Recchi-Seguin-Bergeron

Wheeler-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Campbell-Thornton-(Paille)

 

With Michael Ryder and Nathan Horton essentially switching spots, the rest of the lines seem unchanged. Seguin has centered the second line for the last two games. 

 

The Bruins suffered another power outage on Thursday in their 3-1 loss to the Wild on Thursday (recap).



One of the leaders in the Bruins dressing room called out the rest of the team for non-support of goalie Tuukka Rask. The Bruins netminder made several athletic saves, including a spectacular one on Martin Havlat to keep the Bruins tied. But the save was for naught as the Bruins fell, 3-1, Thursday night to the Minnesota Wild. 

 

When Marc Savard committed a bad third-period turnover in the Bruins zone leading to the go-ahead goal in Minnesota's 3-1 win over the Bruins Thursday night, Bruins coach Claude Julien acted swiftly and dramatically. He benched the top-line center and leading playmaker on the team. 

 

Cal Clutterbuck beat Tuukka Rask with a wrist shot from between the circles at 2:22 of the third period to lead the Wild over the Bruins, 3-1, Thursday night at TD Garden. Bruins nemesis Jose Theodore stopped 35-of-36 shots on the night to improve to 8-1-0 in his last nine games against Boston. Mikko Koivu added an empty-netter with 42.2 seconds remaining to seal the win for Minnesota. 

 

The Bruins held an optional morning skate in anticipation of Thursday night's game against the Wild. The following players skated for the B's:

 

 

Forwards: Nathan Horton, Daniel Paille, David Krejci, Blake Wheeler, Brad Marchand, Tyler Seguin, Milan Lucic, Gregory Campbell.

 

Defensemen: Steven Kampfer, Johnny Boychuk, Andrew Ference, Dennis Seidenberg, Adam McQuaid

 

Goaltenders: Tuukka Rask, Tim Thomas

 

Mike Milbury of NESN and NBC Sports checked in for his weekly visit with the Dale & Holley show Wednesday to talk about the Bruins and the NHL.

 

WILMINGTON -- Bruins coach Claude Julien said following the team's practice at Ristuccia Arena on Wednesday that he feels comfortable using both rookie Tyler Seguin and veteran Patrice Bergeron interchangeably at center on the second line. Given both players' experience at wing, Julien trusts either one at either position on their line with Mark Recchi. 

 

Monday night in Toronto, Julien gave Seguin, who has typically played the wing with Bergeron and Recchi, more time as a pivot, with Bergeron playing left wing. 

 

On Tuesday, the NHL announced the six players chosen in the fan vote for the upcoming All-Star Game. Only the Penguins and Blackhawks were represented, as Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and Marc-Andre Fleury will represent Pittsburgh, while Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith will go from Chicago.

 

There was no question over who stole the show when Tuukka Rask led the Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Maple Leafs Monday night in Toronto (
