According to Claude Julien, Aaron Ward underwent additional tests this morning to determine whether he has suffered a broken orbital bone. The Bruins are expecting results from his testing later today.

Ward will travel to Raleigh this afternoon. If the Bruins need to call up help from Providence, that player will fly to Raleigh on his own.

The league has yet to uphold Walker's one-game suspension for being the instigator in the final five minutes of the game. We should get some word later today.

"I'd be disappointed," said Julien when asked what would happen if Walker's suspension were rescinded. "In reviewing what I saw, I just didn't like what happened. I just don't think there was any need for that. He sucker-punched him once coming into the scrum when [Ward] was involved with another player. He dropped his gloves and sucker-punched him. I don't care what people say about Ward should have protected himself. He had no intentions of getting involved. We asked our guys to stay composed and not fall into that trap. He did just that. A guy with Walker's experience should know better than to sucker-punch a guy."

ANALYSIS: Will be very surprised if Ward is unable to go in Game 6.
