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.
