Andrew Ference, Dennis Seidenberg return to Bruins practice

WILMINGTON — A day after both players left the ice early, defensemen Andrew Ference [1] and Dennis Seidenberg [2] returned to Bruins practice on Thursday at Ristuccia Arena.

Ference had recently received a cortisone shot in his thumb and was advised by doctors not to shoot pucks. As a result, he skated prior to practice on Wednesday but left the ice before the skate began. Seidenberg, meanwhile, left Wednesday’s practice after half an hour with what coach Claude Julien [3] said was either a touch of the flu or food poisoning.

The Bruins, 1-1 on the season, will play their third game on Saturday when they travel to New Jersey to square off with the Devils.
