Good morning from Ristuccia

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Since Boston has a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals over the Philadelphia Flyers, Bruins coach Claude Julien decided to conduct an optional skate Tuesday morning before the team travels to Philadelphia in the afternoon.

With the exception of Zdeno Chara, Mark Recchi, Patrice Bergeron, Johnny Boychuk, Matt Hunwick, Dennis Wideman and Tuukka Rask, everyone else is on the ice.
