Matt Bartkowski is up and he will likely be in.
The defenseman was recalled on Friday morning and was spotted skating alongside Adam McQuaid at morning skate, a sign that he may replace Wade Redden, who was not present, when the Bruins host the Maple Leafs on Friday night at TD Garden.
Bartkowski taking rushes with McQuaid. Would likely go in if Redden, for whatever reason, is unavailable.—
