The Boston Bruins are back in action tonight and look to bounce back from their 1-0 shutout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
Boston showed absolutely no offensive upside on Sunday and we already heard head coach Bruce Cassidy call out Charlie Coyle and Nick Ritchie after Sunday and now he's got a new target.
Cassidy isn't happy with Jake DeBrusk and he's letting it be known.
The B's head coach revealed to reporters that DeBrusk will be made a healthy scratch tonight, the second time this season.
"We just need a higher compete level. It's not about individual stats."
DeBrusk has 4 goals and 7 assists in 34 games this season and has really struggled at times. His name has been mentioned in lots of trade rumors and many believed he would be moved before the deadline.
The 24 year old has another year left on his deal that carries a $3.675million cap hit.
Bruce Cassidy on the message to Jake DeBrusk as he hits the press box tonight: "We just need a higher compete level. It's not about individual stats."
