Alain Vigneault scratched Oscar Lindberg tonight and said tonight that Lindberg was a healthy scratch and not one of the players dealing with bumps and bruises. (MSG)
Vigneault said, "I think, in his case. After looking at the last couple of games I thought that this was the right lineup to go with and he wasn't part of it."
Lindberg is scoreless in the past six games, a minus three, 8 PIM and 14 shots on goal.
Lindberg has averaged between 12:36 and 13:28 per game in the past four games.
