WILMINGTON – The Bruins are running through their final practice at Ristuccia Arena before departing for Pittsburgh.
David Krejci is practicing. Krejci wasn’t on the ice yesterday.
On defense, Zdeno Chara is paired with Johnny Boychuk. Matt Bartkowski and Dennis Seidenberg are the second pairing. It indicates that the power pairing of Chara and Seidenberg will be split up to start the series.
“We’re going to move them around,” Claude Julien said of his defensemen. “We’re going to see where we stand with that. We’re going to see what’s available. With [Andrew] Ference, if they’ve given me the OK with him, then I need to consider that. Sometimes, you can only make those decisions the night before or game day.”
