Still no Ference

WILMINGTON — Defenseman Andrew Ference [1] was again the lone player missing from practice on Wednesday morning in Wilmington as the Bruins held their second practice of the week in preparation for Game 1 with Montreal on Thursday night at TD Banknorth Garden [2].

FerenceĀ  has been out since suffering an undisclosed injury against the Rangers on April 4.

B’s head coach Claude Julien [3], who took part in the warmup skate on Wednesday morning and took his shots at Manny Fernandez [4], said on Tuesday that there was no update and that Ference continues to be “day-to-day.”

“I think when you see him on the ice for the first time, that’ll be a good sign,” Julien said.

The team began practice shortly after 11 a.m.
