Doug Weight not a "healthy" scratch

 Just wanted to clear something up from last night. Coach Scott Gordon took Doug Weight out of the lineup last night because of the back-to-back games, but to designate Weight a "healthy" scratch is not really accurate. As I wrote two days ago, Weight has been battling through a pretty serious shoulder injury, one he should've undergone surgery to repair. Sitting out Weight last night was a way to give the Isles 39 year-old some relief and recovery time so he can play tonight in Pittsburgh.
