BOSTON -- Boston Bruins rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton is in the lineup against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals at TD Garden (7 p.m. CNBC, CBC).
Hamilton, making his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut, had five goals and 16 points in 42 games as a 19-year-old but was scratched for six of the Bruins' last nine regular-season games, including the final three before the postseason, after the Bruins dealt for veteran Wade Redden at the NHL Trade Deadline. Hamilton and Redden will be paired together.
At the other end, Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner is making his first playoff appearance in place of injured Michael Kostka (broken finger), and veteran defender Ryan O'Byrne is replacing healthy scratch John Michael-Liles.
Gardiner hasn't played since registering two assists in a 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on April 18 and has four assists in 12 regular-season games with the Maple Leafs this season.
Gardiner, Frattin and Hamilton are making their Stanley Cup Playoffs debuts, bringing Toronto's total of first-year playoff performers to 13 -- 12 skaters and goalie James Reimer.
Here are the probable line combinations:
