Berkshire Bank Faceoff: Bruins Make Torey Krug Healthy Scratch Against Flyers


Torey Krug, Daniel PailleThe shuffling on the Boston Bruins blue line will continue on Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia where rookie defenseman Torey Krug will be a healthy scratch against the Flyers.

Krug has been in and out of the lineup as of late, and he’ll take a seat in the press box again on Sunday as Andrej Meszaros will be back in the lineup. For Meszaros, it will be his first game against his former team since being traded to Boston just before the trade deadline earlier this month.

The Bruins’ lineup up front and on the back end remains otherwise unchanged. Goalie Tuukka Rask will be back in net after getting Saturday off. Rask currently has a career-best nine-game “point streak,” as he’s 8-0-1 in his last nine starts.

Steve Mason will start for the Flyers.

Here are the rest of the projected lines and defensive pairs for Sunday’s Bruins-Flyers matchup.

Milan Lucic — David Krejci — Jarome Iginla
Brad Marchand — Patrice Bergeron — Reilly Smith
