Bourque back in
Bourque will return to the lineup against Toronto, likely playing on the third line. He was a healthy scratch on Thursday . . . Saturday’s game will mark the first time ex-Bruin Phil Kessel plays against both Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton. Seguin, Hamilton, and Jared Knight are now Bruins because of the Kessel trade . . . David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron didn’t practice on Friday. They both will play on Saturday, Julien said . . . Upon reflection, Julien didn’t blame Lindy Ruff for calling his timeout after the Sabres made it a 7-4 game. Ruff switched out Thomas Vanek for Scott because MacDermid was on the ice. “Maybe the only thing I’m disappointed in is the fact that he thought I sent MacDermid out, if that’s his explanation,” Julien said. “Anybody who knows me knows better than that. I don’t do that in the last seconds. This isn’t my style. Nor is it wise to do those kinds of things. I just sent that line out to finish the game. But he wanted to be cautious. I’m not a coach who’ll send out a guy that can fight against the other team’s top player and beat him up with 20 seconds left.’’
