One game as a healthy scratch was obviously enough to convince the Boston Bruins
that Tyler Seguin
learned his lesson for missing a team breakfast and meeting.
Seguin was absent Tuesday morning from a team gathering in Winnipeg, and was subsequently scratched from that night's 2-1 loss to the Jets.
Bruins coach Claude Julien
said Seguin is scheduled to be back in the lineup tonight, when the Bruins host the Florida Panthers
at the TD Garden.
"I talked about it the other day. I already kind of moved on and I'm ready for the next game," Seguin said after the morning skate.
The second-year forward, who leads the Bruins in scoring, was forbidden from speaking further on the matter. Julien had no intention of addressing the subject more either.
"All I know -- this is old news. This is two days old and for us, we've really turned the page on that," Julien said. "It's not even an issue today, and old news is old news. We've moved on, so I don't even know that I want to go back to that. He's fine and I'm fine. He's in the lineup tonight, he's going to be playing and I think unfortunately, you guys are trying to make a bigger story out of this than it is. He's missed a game, he's paid his dues. It's a 19-year-old that is fine with us, he's a good professional, and that's it. Page turned and we move on."
Here is the probable lineup for tonight's game:
- David Krejci
- Nathan Horton
- Patrice Bergeron
- Tyler Seguin
- Chris Kelly
- Rich Peverley
- Gregory Campbell
- Shawn Thornton
- Johnny Boychuk
- Joe Corvo
- Johnny Boychuk
, who was won his last 10 starts, is scheduled to start in net, as the Bruins try to begin a new streak after their 15-game point streak was snapped by Winnipeg.
