Boston Bruins: Cassidy on scratching Grzelcyk.
“Grizz is playing through a little bit of stuff, we know that. He has been throughout the year. We’ve given him certain nights to recover and we just feel that now is one of those times that we’re gonna do that again.”
Lindholm before the game: “Luckily, I’m in good enough shape to take it in a good way and luckily I didn’t take it worse…I’m just excited to be back in the lineup and play some hockey. This time of year, you want to be out there.”
Vince Z. Mercogliano: New York Rangers coach Gerard Gallant when asked if forward Tyler Motte will be an option: “I think so, but I’m not sure. I have to check with the trainer… today was a good first step.”
Pens Inside Scoop: (the Penguins flew back to Pittsburgh yesterday morning and didn’t practice yesterday). Penguins coach Mike Sullivan yesterday on Sidney Crosby: “Sidney Crosby will be evaluated when he goes back to Pittsburgh with us today. His injury is an upper-body injury. I’m not going to get into more specifics with that.”
