Lightning's Salo scratched with upper-body injury

BOSTON -- Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Sami Salo was scratched against the Boston Bruins on Thursday because of an upper-body injury.

Salo, 39, took part in the morning skate but did not warm up with the team. He was tied for second on the Lightning last season with a plus-5 rating.

In Salo's place the Lightning inserted Mark Barberio, a rookie with two games of prior NHL experience. He was a sixth-round pick of the Lightning in 2008.

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
