Rask to start tonight vs. Kings

BOSTON -- With back-to-back games in as many days for the Boston Bruins, coach Claude Julien will split his goaltending duties.

Tuukka Rask (5-4-1, 2.02 goals-against average, .930 save percentage) will start against the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday night at TD Garden. The Bruins will leave immediately after the game for Ottawa and Tim Thomas (13-5-0, 1.92 GAA, .938) will get the nod against the Senators Wednesday night.
