BOSTON — Ailing Boston Bruins goaltender Manny Fernandez went through with his plan today, according to head coach Claude Julien in his pregame briefing at TD Banknorth Garden.
“He skated this morning,” said Julien, who confirmed Fernandez would not go on the Bruins’ trip up to Montreal for Sunday’s game. “We started out slowly with him and everything went well.”
As for the rest of the line-up, Julien would rather we be surprised and said we’d find out who’s starting in net and who might be among the 18 skaters once warm-ups start. He confirmed, however, that forward Petteri Nokelainen will give it a go in warm-ups.
