Joe Corvo a healthy scratch vs. Maple Leafs

Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] said following the team’s morning skate that defenseman Joe Corvo will be a healthy scratch for the second consecutive game when the B’s host the Maple Leafs Monday at TD Garden. The coach said that Corvo is “banged up,” but able to play.

“Joe is not going to be playing tonight,” Julien said of Corvo. “I said [Saturday] he was a healthy scratch, but he’€™s also a little banged up. What that means is if we really needed him he’€™d be available, but right now we’€™re going to stick with the same lineup of healthy guys.”

Mike Mottau will be the other healthy scratch on the blue line.
