BOSTON -- Rookie Anders Lee was a healthy scratch for the second straight game and third time in the five games since he joined the team on April 1.
Capuano has been wary of dropping the 22-year-old into tough situations against speedy opponents. Lee was on the ice for all four goals against in the two games he played, though he did score a goal in his NHL debut.
Lee joined Marty Reasoner, Eric Boulton and Radek Martinek as scratches.
