Matt Bartkowski is up and he will likely be in.
The defenseman was recalled on Friday morning and was spotted skating alongside Adam McQuaid at morning skate, a sign that he may replace Wade Redden, who was not present, when the Bruins host the Maple Leafs on Friday night at TD Garden.
Bartkowski taking rushes with McQuaid. Would likely go in if Redden, for whatever reason, is unavailable.— Fluto Shinzawa (@GlobeFluto) May 10, 2013
Bartkowski is here. Skating this morning in Redden's spot. Redden is not present. #Bruins— Naoko Funayama (@NaokoFunayama) May 10, 2013

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
JIM ROGASH/GETTY IMAGES BOSTON-- According to a tweet from Joe Haggerty of Comcast SportsNet New England, Bruins defenseman Wade Redden will not play in tonight’s game against the Maple Leafs. Haggerty tweeted the following earlier today. Claude said between Dougie Hamilton & Matt Bartkowski to fill in for Redden (day-to-day). Would be shocked if its not Bartkowski...
Scary stuff right here. You are looking at the CAT scan of Leafs’ defenseman Mark Fraser’s skull after he took a Milan Lucic shot off the head in Game Four.
Fraser was able to leave under his own power thank god. He had surgery to repair a fracture between his eyes and the cranial area.
This just tells you that hockey players are the toughest athletes on the planet.
BOSTON — The Bruins’ line of Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand was the club’s best for much of the regular season. However, since the playoffs began, that trio has gone cold.
And as the Bruins find themselves heading to Game 6 in Toronto on Sunday night, it’s about time that line gets heated up again. If they don’t, it could be a big reason the B’s have...
Goalies can single-handedly swing playoff series and win Stanley Cups, but they can’t do it all in one night. Tuukka Rask appears to be doing his darnedest on Thursday night, however, after a sterling first period against an obviously desperate Toronto Maple Leafs team.
Rask made 19 saves in the first period of Friday’s game, some more spectacular than others. When the dust settled...
Bruins fans entering TD Garden will likely walk by a statue outside of the arena depicting one of the most famous moments in the club’s and the league’s history. That statue of Bobby Orr‘s Stanley Cup-winning goal in 1970 has a little added meaning on Friday.
That’s because Friday marks the 43-year anniversary of the Bruins legend’s Cup-winning goal against the St. Louis...
David Krejci is awesome
What a hockey game. Both teams skated their asses off and both deserved to win. In the Boston Bruins first overtime playoff game of the 2013 post-season, the fans were quickly reminded about how god awfully awesome it is to watch your team play in an overtime playoff game, and if that didn’t make sense to you then you haven’t been watching enough hockey...
When it comes to the playoffs, the Bruins go as David Krejci goes. He’s been one of the best players on the ice through four games in Boston’s first-round series with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and as a result, the Bruins are one game from winning the series.
Krejci played another phenomenal game, and he capped it with an overtime winner — giving him a hat trick — in the Bruins’...
It took more than 50 minutes for the Bruins to give their fans something to cheer about, but when Zdeno Chara beat Toronto goalie James Reimer with a wrister midway through the third period, the TD Garden crowd allowed itself a moment of hope.
Unfortunately for the black and gold-clad fans, Chara’s goal was all the Bruins could muster in a 2-1 loss to the Maple Leafs in Game 5...
Let the movement begin. Bruins fans need to UNITE against the DREADED seventh game because….
They are hazardous to your health.
They are sixty minutes of PURE HELL and if they go to OT, the devil will laugh as he waits for your burning soul.
The hospitals in New England will be flooded with Bruins fans suffering from heart issues, high blood pressure, ulcers and heartburn from...
Nazem Kadri celebrates with teammates- (Chris Young/ Canadian Press) BOSTON— For the Bruins, last night’s goal was simple. If they won Game 5 in front of the home fans, they would be moving on to the next round. That was in stark contrast to the goal of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Prior to last night’s game, they were holding on for their dear hockey lives. A loss would send...
Boston Bruins forward David Krejci scored a hat trick against the Toronto Maple Leafs, including this game winning goal. With the win tonight, the Boston Bruins also take a 3-1 series lead against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Bruins overcame a 2-0 deficit by scoring three goals in 15 minutes period during the second period, before the Toronto Maple Leafs evened the score. Krejci...
Boston Bruins forward #46 David Krejci scores the game winning goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime in game 4, the goal capped off his 2nd career playoff hat trick
The Boston Bruins have put themselves in an excellent position for game 5 tonight at the TD Garden. After a big overtime win in Toronto, the B’s head home with a 3-1 series lead having won both games at the...
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OVERTIME WIN! WE LOVE YOU DAVID KREJCI! WE WANT TO HAVE YOUR BABIES! ENJOY THE FREE HATS! KREJCI THREE GOALS TO GET A 3-1 SERIES LEAD! WE HOPE HE CHEATED ON ALL THREE GOALS! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
EVERY MIDDLE FINGER IN TORONTO IS POINTED AT KREJCI AND WE LOVE IT!
You've been here before.
The Bruins have been here before.
But most importantly, goaltender Tuukka Rask has been here before.
Holding a 3-1 series lead by way of David Krejci's overtime goal this past Wednesday, a trip back to Boston tonight gives the Bruins to hammer down the final of four nails needed in the Toronto Maple Leafs' coffin. In other words -...
from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,
The moment was immortalized precisely 43 years ago today.
Flashback to May 10, 1970, Boston Garden: The Boston Bruins are leading the St. Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup final three games to nothing and looking for the sweep. The game is knotted at three and the teams are heading into overtime.
A mere 40 seconds into the extra frame, defenceman...
