its_a_girlWILMINGTON, Mass. — If two Boston Bruins players looked a little more tired during practice today at Ristuccia Arena and were more eager than the rest to  depart, they had good reason.

Both defensemen Andrew Ference and Aaron Ward became fathers again Sunday. Ference’s wife Krista gave birth to a second girl — Stella Haliday James Ference. And Ward’s wife Kelly gave birth to the couple’s second daughter and third child — Phoebe Grace Ward.

Congrats to both Bruins players and their families.
