If Wade Redden gets the green light to return for the Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals then he might start out the series as a healthy scratch.

He skated on Boston's fourth defense pair with rookie Dougie Hamilton during Wednesday's practice session. Hamilton was a healthy scratch in Game 5 against the Rangers due to the return of Dennis Seidenberg to the lineup.
