Andrew Ference out for Game 7

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference [1] is out for Game 7 against the Maple Leafs, coach Claude Julien [2] said prior to the game on Monday.

The defenseman, who was suspended for Game 2 and also missed Game 6 due to injury, was spotted with crutches and a walking boot [3] on his left foot by The Boston Globe’s Kevin Paul Dupont on Monday.

Dougie Hamilton was inserted into the lineup in Ference’s place on Sunday, and the Bruins will have the choice between Hamilton and Matt Bartkowski on Monday.
