Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden participated in the Bruins’ morning skate. It’s unlikely that either defenseman, however, will make his series debut tonight. The other six defensemen took line rushes in their regular spots.
Jaromir Jagr was the only player not to participate in the skate. Jagr took the ice for an optional practice Wednesday, so he was likely taking a rest this morning. Carl Soderberg took Jagr’s spot on the second line for line rushes.
For the Rangers, neither Brad Richards nor Arron Asham is expected to dress. Anton Stralman didn’t skate this morning and is likely out. Ex-Canadien Roman Hamrlik could replace Stralman.
Tonight’s expected Bruins lineup:
Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Jaromir Jagr
Rich Peverley-Chris Kelly-Tyler Seguin
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara-Dougie Hamilton
Matt Bartkowski-Johnny Boychuk
Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid
