Report: Sens’ Phillips a healthy scratch vs. Boston

Chris Phillips will be a healthy scratch Saturday afternoon when the Ottawa Senators visit the Boston Bruins.

According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Phillips’ scratch is a “coaches decision”.

The 36-year-old has two assists in 23 games this season to go along with a minus-2 rating while averaging over 22 minutes a night in ice time.

Phillips has been a minus in consecutive games and saw his ice time drop below 18 minutes for just the second time this season in Ottawa’s 5-3 loss to the Kings on Thursday night.

Patrick Wiercioch will replace Phillips in the lineup.
