Leafs, Bruins look to their depth ahead of Game 2, with Toronto after a split

BOSTON - Boston coach Claude Julien says either Dougie Hamilton or Matt Bartkowski will fill in for suspended defenceman Andrew Ference in Game 2 of the Bruins' NHL playoff series against the Leafs.

Ference received a one-game ban for an illegal check to the head of Toronto forward Mikhail Grabovski in Boston's 4-1 win in Game 1.

Forward Rich Peverley, who sat out Game 1, could step into the Boston lineup for Kaspars Daugevins.

He would play on the Bruins' third line with Jaromir Jagr and Chris Kelly.

The expectation is that Hamilton will be Julien's choice with the 19-year-old rookie playing alongside veteran Wade Redden.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
