B's won't have defenseman Ference for Game 6
The Boston Bruins will be without the services of defenseman Andrew Ference for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Toronto Maple Leafs Sunday.
TORONTO -- The Boston Bruins will be without the services of defenseman Andrew Ference for Game 6 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday night at Air Canada Centre.
Ference, who was hurt in the third period of Friday's Game 5 in Boston, did not make the trip here with the team and is listed as day to day, according to Bruins coach Claude Julien.
"He did not make the trip for the right reasons," Julien said. "We're heading back home tonight one way or another, so he's day to day."
Hamilton played Game 2 while Ference served his one-game suspension for an illegal hit to the head of the Maple Leafs' Mikhail Grabovski.
The odd man out here for the Bruins is veteran Aaron Johnson. Because he's been a healthy scratch for the majority of the season, he's not game-ready.
"It's been tough for Aaron," Julien said. "For me, it's about what players are allowed and not allowed to do. We would have loved to given him an opportunity to play and play in Providence (AHL), but the CBA doesn't allow it and it's played against him. Right now we've got a player who hasn't played in a long time, and it's tough for him."
