Michael Ryder is a healthy scratch for tonight’s game against the Blue Jackets. Tyler Seguin will skate in his spot on the third line. This will mark the first time Michael Ryder has been a healthy scratch since joining the Bruins. It also is something new from Claude Julien, who in his tenure with Boston,has never sat an underperforming veteran. He usually takes the easy way out and sits a rookie or second year player. If in fact Ryder is a healthy scratch and not suffering from an injury, then the thought is a good one and something that should have happened to other members of this team years ago.
