Andrew Ference returns to practice

WILMINGTON — As Claude Julien [1] suggested Monday, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference [2] returned to practice Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena.

Ference, who missed two games earlier this month with a lower-body injury, was given a maintenance day on Monday. All other players were present Tuesday, with the color-coded lines remaining the same.

The B’s are preparing for the first game of a home-and-home with the Maple Leafs [3], which begins Wednesday in Toronto.
