Dennis Seidenberg skates, won’t return for Game 2

The Bruins got a couple of positive signs regarding their injured defensemen Saturday, with Dennis Seidenberg [1] skating prior to practice and Wade Redden returning to practice.

Following the skate, Claude Julien [2] told reporters that Seidenberg will not play in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Rangers, while Redden will be a game-time decision. Ference has yet to skate since missing Game 6 of the first round against the Maple Leafs [3].

Though the Bruins struggled at points without the defensemen, they have won both games played without all three, as Seidenberg left after two minutes of Game 7 against Toronto and all three players sat out for Game 1 against the Rangers.
