WILMINGTON — Defenseman Andrew Ference  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 .
Ference has been out since suffering an undisclosed injury against the Rangers on April 4.
B’s head coach Claude Julien , who took part in the warmup skate on Wednesday morning and took his shots at Manny Fernandez , 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.
