Only two scratched for Bruins against Liberec HC

PRAGUE – The Bruins will only have to scratch two skaters Tuesday night — Brian McGrattan and Matt Bartkowski – in addition to goaltender Nolan Schaefer as they gladly abide by the European 22-man limit when they face Liberec HC at Tipsport Arena. Claude Julien cautioned members of the media not to read into Bartkowski’s second consecutive sitting as him being “done,” while McGrattan, who is still in on a tryout, remains up in the air. It would be surprising if he were to not end up the team’s 13th forward.
As Julien said on Monday, Tim Thomas will make his second preseason start in the game. Here is how the offensive lines should shake out.
Lucic – Krejci – Horton
Recchi – Bergeron – Wheeler
Paille – Seguin – Caron/Ryder
Marchand – Campbell – Thornton
