Mark Pysyk and Carlo Colaiacovo will both be scratched from Friday's match with Boston.

We're not always told why a given player is scratched, Colaiacovo is a prime example tonight. However Coach Dan Byslma lent us a glimpse into his thoughts on Pysyk, "We've won with the lineup and, for the most part, liked our six defensemen in those games," Bylsma said. "He's not going to have to wait for a loss to get in, though." Underline glimpse. But the point is that Byslma is intent on getting the young Pysyk more playing time.
