WILMINGTON, Mass. — After taking off Saturday to lick their wounds, the Bruins returned to practice today at Ristuccia Arena.
While the Bruins were on Long Island yesterday, defensemen Andrew Ference and Steven Kampfer stayed back in Boston to continue their recovery from injury.
BOSTON — Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference is “progressing” in his attempt to return from a lower-body injury, according to head coach Claude Julien.
BOSTON — Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference skated this morning on the TD Garden ice under the watchful eye of strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference skated this morning before the team’s practice at Ristuccia Arena but did not join his teammates for practice.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — Bruins head coach Claude Julien said today that Mark Recchi missed practice due to a personal matter.
BOSTON — Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference was injured in the first period last Saturday and hasn’t been seen since.
After his team’s morning skate at TD Garden in preparation for tonight’s game with the Tampa Bay Lightning, head coach Claude Julien offered an update.
It has to be a good sign that Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference has stuck with the team through the final couple days of its lengthy road trip after getting injured last Saturday night in Vancouver.
The Bruins are scheduled to take on Ottawa Tuesday with the same roster that they faced Edmonton Sunday because the club made no NHL trades today and defenseman Andrew Ference remains out.
The Bruins will face Edmonton tonight without one of their mainstays on defense and with their 1A goaltender between the pipes.
It has been a long day with all the trades and then the Bruins’ 4-2 win at Ottawa, so I’m just going to close the night with some quick-hit thoughts on what went down over the last 10 hours or so.
BOSTON – So let me guess.
Right about now, Don Cherry and every other pundit that decided over the last week that the Bruins’ dressing room is fractured because of Andrew Ference’s comments about Daniel Paille’s hit against Dallas are figuring the team was so mad at Ference they took it out on the faces of the Montreal Canadiens.
You can count Don Cherry among those not impressed by Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference’s decision to publicly classify teammate Daniel Paille’s hit on Raymond Sawada of Dallas Thursday as “a bad hit.”
BOSTON — Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference has battled the injury bug numerous times over the last couple seasons.
BOSTON — With two shots on net tonight, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference is now averaging exactly one shot on net per game.
The difference now is he finally has something to show for his efforts.
