For four games, Wade Redden delivered what was asked of him when the Bruins acquired him from St. Louis.The defenseman, skating on the third pairing, moved the puck efficiently. He didn’t take risks. He contributed offensively (goal and assist in Game 1) when opportunities were available.
But the Bruins were without those assets in Friday night’s 2-1 loss to Toronto in Game 5. Redden was knocked out of the lineup with an undisclosed injury. Coach Claude Julien termed Redden day to day.
