A couple of surprising scratches here...

NHL: Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

It's hockey night in Boston...unless you're Danton Heinen or Matt Grzelcyk.

The team confirmed in a second Tweet that those two guys would indeed be healthy scratches. Interesting.

EDIT (12:11 PM): Apparently Grzelcyk is nursing a minor injury, so it is only one healthy scratch. Carry on.

Both guys could probably use a bit of a break, as neither is used to the full NHL grind.

However, sitting Heinen for Gionta is...yeah. It's something.

Expect Tuukka Rask in net.

Thoughts on the scratches?
