Joe Morrow has been a frequent healthy scratch this season, but he has played in each of Boston's last three contests.

"There [had been] a drop in his play, the consistency, but we've addressed that, and to me he's had three pretty strong games. That's the encouraging part of a young player getting better for us." Morrow picked up his first point, with an assist, in Saturday's 4-1 win over Winnipeg.
