Ference/By S. Bradley

BOSTON — Bruins head coach Claude Julien declared Andrew Ference out for his team’s game against Buffalo Saturday night.

Ference suffered a lower-body injury against Edmonton Thursday. He did not practice today at the TD Garden.

Rich Peverely, who has missed Boston’s last two games with an undisclosed injury, practiced again today. He also practiced Wednesday and took the morning skate before missing Thursday’s game. Julien said the winger would be re-evaluated Saturday.

When told that if the doctors keep telling him he’s cleared for practices but not games he needs to “grease the right palms,” the normally stoic Peverley actually released a two-beat chuckle.
