Fernandez gets back on ice

Bruins goaltender Manny Fernandez [1], out since Jan. 8 with a balky back, stepped out on the ice and skated for the first time this morning prior to the Saturday matinee between the Bruins and Rangers at the TD Banknorth Garden [2].

“He skated this morning,” said B’s coach Claude Julien [3], who also said that Fernandez won’t be making the Sunday trip up to Montreal with the rest of the team for tomorrow’s matinee game at the Bell Centre [4]. “We started off slowly with him, and everything went well.”

Today will be the ninth game that Fernandez has missed with a bad back.
