Frank Vatrano will be in the press box on Thursday night as a healthy scratch.

Vatrano has two goals in 19 games so far this season with the Bruins. He is often a healthy scratch for his team. He has been held off the score sheet in seven straight games. Joining him in the press box for this game will be Paul Postma, a fellow healthy scratch, and the sidelined Ryan Spooner.

Matt Beleskey has been placed on waivers by the Boston Bruins.

Beleskey has frequently been a healthy scratch this season, so the news isn't terribly surprising. Even still, it does highlight how bad his five-year, $18 million contract has been. That deal doesn't expire until 2019-20, so unless the Bruins are able to unload him, he might be bought out this summer.

Kevan Miller (personal) is expected to be back in the lineup on Thursday night.

Miller remained in Boston Wednesday to be his wife, Haley, after she gave birth to a baby Tuesday night. Paul Postma suited up in Miller's place against Detroit.

Torey Krug registered a pair of assists in Wednesday's 3-2 OT win over Detroit.

Krug had helpers on David Pastrnak's game-tying goal and Brad Marchand's game winner. He has produced four assists in the past two games to give him 18 points in 24 appearances this season.
Dec 14 - 8:48 AM

Noel Acciari was back in the lineup on Wednesday versus Detroit.

Acciari didn't play Saturday because of an upper-body injury. He scored his second goal of the season in a 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings. Acciari also had two hits in 10:50 of ice time.
Dec 14 - 2:33 AM

Tuukka Rask turned aside 31 of 33 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The Bruins found themselves down 2-1 with under two minutes to go, but David Pastrnak managed to force overtime. In the extra frame, Brad Marchand gave Boston the victory. Rask has now won five games in a row. He's also given up two goals or less in each of those wins. He owns an 8-8-2 record with a 2.41 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage this season.
Dec 14 - 12:07 AM

Brad Marchand scored the game-winning goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Marchand beat Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard with a gorgeous backhand just 35 seconds into the extra frame. The Bruins forward also registered an assist on David Pastrnak's game-tying goal with under two minutes remaining in regulation. Marchand is now riding a six-game point streak (he has 10 points during that stretch). He's up to 12 goals and 25 points in 20 games this season. He's a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Matt Beleskey will be a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Beleskey has no points and a minus-8 rating in 14 games this season. Frank Vatrano will watch the game from the press box while Kevan Miller will miss the game for personal reasons.

Ryan Spooner (lower body) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game.

It will be Spooner's third straight contest on the sidelines. He has a goal and four points in 10 games this season.
Dec 13 - 12:48 PM

Kevan Miller (personal) will miss Wednesday's game and then return to the Bruins' lineup on Thursday.

Miller's wife gave birth to their first child on Tuesday. Congratulations to Miller and his growing family!
Dec 13 - 12:47 PM

Kevan Miller did not practice Tuesday because his wife was giving birth.

Miller is uncertain for Wednesday's game against Detroit at this time. The Bruins expect to get a better idea of his status in the morning.
Dec 13 - 8:56 AM

Ryan Spooner (lower body) probably won't play Wednesday at Detroit.

Spooner skated on a fifth line during Tuesday's practice with Matt Beleskey and Frank Vatrano and he didn't see power-play work. "We'll decide (today). We just don't want to go backward with that one," said coach Bruce Cassidy. Spooner is listed as day-to-day.
Dec 13 - 8:53 AM

Anton Khudobin will face the Washington Capitals on Thursday night.

Coach Bruce Cassidy said that Tuukka Rask will play Wednesday and Khudobin will get the second match of the back-to-back situation. The Bruins backup was pulled on Dec. 4 in his last outing, but he has played well this season. Khudobin has a 7-1-2 record with a 2.53 GAA and a .922 save percentage.
Dec 12 - 12:55 PM

Tuukka Rask will start Wednesday's game against Detroit.

Rask has won his last four starts, while allowing just two goals on 52 shots. He has a 7-8-2 record this season with a 2.43 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage.
Dec 12 - 12:50 PM

Adam McQuaid (broken leg) took part in practice with his teammates.

It marked McQuaid's first session since he sustained a broken fibula on Oct. 19. The Bruins will have to adjust their roster once he is ready to return. "He's just starting practice and contact with the guys. But with any extra guys that are proven, it's a good problem to have," said coach Bruce Cassidy. "We'll fit the pieces together when he's truly ready to play. But it is nice to have him around."
