When Wade Redden dressed for Game 1, the Blues improved their 2014 draft position. If Redden appeared in one playoff game, St. Louis would receive a 2014 sixth-round pick. Redden was originally traded to the Bruins for a seventh-rounder.
The Bruins’ bosses had no problem with that outcome. Redden scored Boston’s first goal and assisted on the winning strike Wednesday night against the Maple Leafs.
