Claude Julien: Andrew Ference ‘very questionable’ vs. Penguins

Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] told reporters on Friday that defenseman Andrew Ference [2] is dealing with an upper-body injury, explaining his absence in the third period of Thursday night’s 7-5 win over the Flyers.

Julien said that Ference is “very questionable” for Saturday’s game against the Penguins [3].

“We’re hoping it’s minor enough that we’ll see him back soon,” Julien said.

Given Ference’s status, the Bruins on Friday morning called up Matt Bartkowski on an emergency basis from Providence.
