Michael Blunden will be a healthy scratch in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal against the Islanders.

Jonathan Marchessault will dress instead after being a scratch all of Round 1. Matt Taormina will also be scratched. He dressed in Game 4 against Detroit, but only saw the ice in a measly 2:39.

Michael Blunden is enjoying his time in the playoffs, especially since at this time last year he was recovering from reconstructive knee surgery from a torn ACL and MCL.

"Mike has earned his way here," coach Jon Cooper said. "There are those players who give those 8-12 minutes a night that will do anything for their teammates. He's big, will go to any area on the ice, phenomenal on the bench. He's one of those guys who can get under the opponent's skin a little bit." He doesn't get much ice time or score many points, but his teammates love the energy he brings to the ice.
