Redden out for tonight's game

Wade Redden will miss game two of the series tonight. His mother Pat lost her battle to brain cancer and he's flown back to Saskatchewan to be with the family. Christoph Schubert will take his place and has big shoes to fill.

Redden had a terrific game one and was the team's best blueliner, so his loss will hurt, but captain Alfie put it best:

"There are things that are more important than hockey. He's going through a tough time and our thoughts are with him."
