It's hockey night in Boston...unless you're Danton Heinen or Matt Grzelcyk.
#NHLBruins morning rushes:— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 1, 2018
Marchand – Riley Nash – Pastrnak
DeBrusk – Krejci – Rick Nash
Wingels – Backes – Gionta
Schaller – Kuraly – Acciari
Chara – McAvoy
Krug – Miller
Holden – Carlo
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?
