BOSTON — Today, Boston Bruins goaltender Manny Fernandez has joined yesterday’s trio of pre-practice skaters on the TD Banknorth Garden ice.
Fernandez, out since Saturday with an undisclosed injury, has not been on the ice since the ailment came to light. So now you can throw out all those hushed (and some not-so-hushed trade rumors).
He’s currently skating with fellow recovering injured players Patrice Bergeron, Andrew Ference and Milan Lucic. The full squad is scheduled to hit the ice in 30 minutes for its pregame skate in preparation for tonight’s showdown with Montreal.
I’ll have more as the day moves on.
