Boston Bruins Without Wade Redden For Game 5

The Boston Bruins drop the puck for Game 5 against the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight, but they will be without defenseman Wade Redden, who is listed as “day-to-day” with an undisclosed injury. According to Joe Haggerty of CSN New England, the details on Redden’s injury are hard to come by. 

Haggerty writes:

The Bruins will have a different look for Game 5 against the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden with veteran defenseman Wade Redden out of the lineup. Claude Julien said Redden is out for Friday night’s game, and that either Matt Bartkowski or Dougie Hamilton will spell a third pairing D-man that’s been very effective in this series.

Julien wouldn’t elaborate on Redden’s issue, but said that the blueliner is “day-to-day” after a physical Game 4 against Toronto.

Bartkowski is the most likely to take Redden’s spot in the line up.

The Bruins are in good shape this series as they take a 3-1 lead in to tonight’s game at the TD Garden. If the team can get the win tonight in front of their home crowd, then the Maple Leafs will have and long miserable flight home as they are eliminated from the postseason.
