"Both of them skated this morning," Bruins head coach Claude Julien said to the media Sunday. "Redds and Seidenberg. But both won't be available today."
Redden has been sidelined with an undisclosed injury, while Seidenberg's knee has kept him out. Along with the injured and already ruled out Andrew Ference, the Bruins are without three veteran defensemen for the second consecutive game.
With Redden, Seidenberg and Ference out, the Bruins played a trio of rookies, Dougie Hamilton, Torey Krug and Matt Bartkowski in Game 1 and with great results. Krug had a goal and Hamilton an assist as Boton edged New York in overtime to take a 1-0 series lead. The three rookies will be back in the lineup for the Bruins in Game 2.
