The Boston Bruins have eased Dougie Hamilton into the mix in his rookie season, but Claude Julien apparently isn’t that comfortable with throwing the 19-year-old defenseman out there against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 1.
CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty reports that Hamilton will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday.
Hamilton scored 16 points while averaging a little more than 17 minutes per night in 42 games this season.
The Bruins laid out their six-man defensive rotation, in case you want to bicker about who “should” have sat out today’s game instead:
As you can see from this Tweet, the Bruins are definitely trumpeting experience:
The B’s roster comes into tonight’s game w/ 1,273 postseason games of exp. vs. the Leafs who have a combined 206 postseason games of exp.^BB
