Wade Redden injury: Bruins defenseman practices, may play in Game 2

USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins may get Wade Redden back for Game 2, but do not expect either Dennis Seidenberg or Andrew Ference to play.

Wade Redden may return to the ice for Game 2 of the Boston Bruins' Eastern Conference semifinal series against the New York Rangers. The defenseman practiced with the Bruins on Saturday and head coach Claude Julien said he would be a game-time decision on Sunday.

"I'm coming," Redden said via ESPN.com. "Good to be out there. I wasn't doing everything out there but still day-to-day and getting better. I'm just keeping patient and hopefully things keep progressing."

Redden has not played since Game 5 of the Bruins' first round series because of an undisclosed injury.

While Redden may return for Game 2, the same is not true for Andrew Ference and Dennis Seidenberg. Ference is definitely out for Sunday's game with a foot injury, while Julien does not expect Seidenberg to play as he continues to recover from a knee injury.

"With Seidenberg obviously doing better, I don't anticipate him being ready for tomorrow but with the injury he's got you never know," Julien said. "As far as Ference is concerned he wasn't skating so he won't be able to go."

With Redden, Ference and Seidenberg out for Game 1, the Bruins played three rookie defensemen, all of whom acquitted themselves rather well. Boston won Game 1 and leads the series 1-0.
