Nick Leddy took the healthy scratch the way any competitive player would. He wasn’t happy about it.
Marcus Kruger has been there before, albeit briefly.
The question was asked only half in jest to Ben Smith, who has bounced around the lineup quite a bit and was bouncing again at Thursday’s practice, this time to the top line.
Andrew Shaw is out but Nick Leddy should return to the lineup when the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Minnesota in Game 4 of their second-round series on Friday night.
