One of the more interesting storylines of the Rangers/Bruins series will be the return of Wade Redden. The veteran defenseman, who the Rangers gave a 6-year, $39 million contract in 2008 and then bought out using a new amnesty clause in January, signed with the Blues before the start of the season and was then traded to the Bruins at the trade deadline.
However, Redden is one of three Bruins defensmen who missed Game 7 (he also sat out Game 5) because of injury. While the nature of the ailment has not been released (who's coaching that team Torts?) it is speculated that Redden might not be ready for tomorrow's Game 1 in Boston.
Andrew Ference (lower body) also missed Monday's epic 5-4 overtime win over the Maple Leafs in Game 7, and Dennis Seidenberg (undisclosed injury) was able to play only 37 seconds. They are both questionable for tomorrow's game.
Redden finished the regular season with 3g, 4a in 29 regular season games with both the Blues and the ...

(Photo by Elsa/Getty Images) BOSTON-- According to a report from DJ Bean of WEEI’s Big Bad blog, the Bruins announced on Tuesday that they recalled defenseman Torey Krug from Providence. General manager Peter Chiarelli made the announcement, but did not offer any additional information about other player injuries. Wade Redden and Andrew Ference missed Tuesday’s series...
Bruins head coach Claude Julien told the media that winger Brad Marchand, who left Thursday’s morning skate “wincing in pain” after what appeared to be an injury, will be playing in Game 1 against the Rangers on Thursday night.
“He’ll be fine. He’ll be out there [Thursday night],” Julien explained.
According to reporters Matt Kalman and Joe McDonald...
When the Bruins defeated the Maple Leafs in overtime on Patrice Bergeron's goal, completing an epic Game 7 comeback in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, my first thought was this: I wonder if Jack Edwards survived.
The Bruins play by play man is a little crazy (he even admits to that in his Twitter bio) and a Hawk Harrelson level homer. Sometimes his craziness...
The Bruins forced overtime after scoring two goals in the waning minutes of Monday’s Game 7 against the Maple Leafs. Following Boston’s 4-3 overtime win, Bruins’ tough guy Martin Lucic went through the handshake line and happily shook nowhere near the Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf’s hand.

Game seven will go down in Boston lore
Glory Days Grill is a popular chain of sports bars in the Maryland/DC area and for the longest time the one in Burke, Virginia could not have been a more depressing place. On one hand, Washington was getting blown out in their own game seven on home ice and this happens to be in Washington territory. The other side of things is that a small...
Shock, confusion, and heartbreak. That’s how the Toronto Maple Leafs season ended Monday night during Game Seven of their first round match-up against the Boston Bruins.Up 4-1 with less than eleven minutes left in the third period, it seemed almost certain that the Leafs were about to upset the Boston Bruins and move onto the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. But, somehow...

I am sitting here reflecting on what happened last night with the Bruins and Maple Leafs. I still can't believe what we saw. Going along with my last post, the Bruins never like to make it easy on themselves. Boston teams in general always have to make their...
Just a few things that caught my eye:
Chris Hadfield returned to Earth at 10:31 p.m. Eastern time a sad man -- Canada's space station commander is a HUGE Leafs' fan. No wonder he had a hard time getting out of the space capsule. He had to dry his tears first.
Andrew Ference arrived at the arena in a walking boot. Wade Redden was a late scratch. And...
By now, if you've not heard about the Boston Bruins historic game 7 comeback, you're living under a rock. As you probably know, my forte is writing about the Boston Celtics. However, this video was a heart moving, passionate and exciting moment in Boston sports history that I feel deserves your attention. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did... (via Sean Bakke)
Putting the puck past Henrik Lundqvist is a huge challenge for the Boston Bruins.
Of course, they have to get it to him first and that's a tough task against the shot-blocking New York Rangers.
''They're definitely going to be laying down to block those shots,'' Boston forward Patrice Bergeron said after practice for Thursday night's series opener. ...
