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 [1] 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 [2] 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
