Boychuk a healthy scratch

BOSTON -- Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk is a healthy scratch tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"I think his battle is still good and stuff like that," Bruins coach Claude Julien said after today's morning skate. "When it comes to puck decisions, he's had his fair share of challenges."

With Boychuk out, both Steven Kampfer and Mark Stuart are in the lineup tonight, joining fellow blueliners Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Andrew Ference and Adam McQuaid.

Boychuk has one goal and eight assists in 46 games this season. He also has a plus-8 rating.
