Scott Hartnell will be a healthy scratch Tuesday against Washington.

"That decision isn't made lightly," coach John Tortorella said. "You've got to go through the process, and with Scotty, I've done that. It's been a lack of discipline and a number of different things. I'm not going to go public with everything, but it's been a number of things in the past couple of weeks." He wants to get Hartnell back to playing "under a team concept" and it doesn't sound like he will be out of the lineup for very long.

Scott Hartnell apologized to his teammates for taking a bad penalty on Saturday.

Hartnell was slow to get off the ice following his shift because he was arguing with the Avalanche and that led to a too many men on the ice penalty. It didn't end up costing the Blue Jackets, but it also wasn't the first time he's taken an unnecessary penalty this season. "I owed them an apology," Hartnell said. "I'm a better player than some of the penalties I've taken the past few games, warranted (penalties) or not. I'm frustrated with myself, and I think everyone is (frustrated) with me. I know better." Hartnell has 81 penalty minutes this season, including four minors in his last five games. That doesn't count the too many men on the ice as it counts as a bench penalty.

Scott Hartnell could be a healthy scratch on Saturday as well.

The power forward sat out Friday's game as John Tortorella was not happy with his game of late. "It’s an accumulation of his play and of his lack of discipline," Tortorella said. "That’s a really tough penalty to take in Montreal. But it’s not a reaction just to that. His game has struggled a little bit. He was my best player, when I first came here. He was the most effective forward we had. Sometimes ... young, old, or in-between, you need to sit and watch and self-evaluate. He needs to be a very important part of this team. I think he will be. Where his game was going, in a number of different situations, I decided to make that decision and take him out." Hartnell has nine goals, 16 points and 37 penalty minutes but obviously has struggled of late. Stay tuned.

Coach John Tortorella revealed that Scott Hartnell's absence was due to a healthy scratch on Friday.

Well, it's a relief that Hartnell's not hurt or sick. But Tortorella is known for extended benchings, which may come Hartnell's way given how he's produced since mid-November. In his eight games since Nov. 17th, Hartnell has two points, five blocks, 10 shots on goal, 11 hits, and 20 PIMs. No bueno.
