Bruins still without three veteran defensemen

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien confirmed Sunday morning that defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden would not be available for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the New York Rangers at TD Garden.

The Bruins lead the series 1-0, and won Game 1 without Redden, Seidenberg or Andrew Ference in the lineup. Julien said that Redden and Seidenberg skated on their own. Ference has not skated since he was injured in Game 5 of the Bruins' first-round series with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Redden practiced with the Bruins on Saturday, but was limited in what he could do. Seidenberg skated on his own Saturday.

Quote of the Day

He scores 50 goals, they go in, they go in, and they go in. And I think, 'Why can't I do that?'
