Berkshire Bank Faceoff: Dougie Hamilton In, Torey Krug Out For Bruins

Dougie HamiltonBOSTON — There were some who wondered aloud why Boston Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton was a healthy scratch for the Bruins’ last two games. Those people can rest easy for Thursday night, at least.

B’s coach Claude Julien revealed prior to his team’s game with the Phoenix Coyotes that Hamilton will indeed be back in the lineup after a two-game break. Hamilton had been the healthy scratch in Florida and Montreal as Andej Meszaros made his first two appearances for the Black and Gold.

Torey Krug will be taken out of the lineup as a healthy scratch. Corey Potter is out as well.

Daniel Paille is out once again. He’s working his way back from a concussion. Julien said there’s a good chance Paille, who skated Thursday morning, is back Saturday against Carolina.
