Bruins Beat: B's Arrive in Edmonton Video

Before practice in Edmonton, the B’s were met by current Oilers Captain Andrew Ference and during the skate the Bruins saw a new goalie lend them a hand.

I just sent him a text to congratulate him. I think he’s deserving, everybody who knows him here knows what kind of a person he was and what kind of a leader he was on and off the ice. They’ve got a young team over there and the minute he signed there, in the back of my mind I thought he had an opportunity to become the Captain there and I think they made a great choice—very deserving and because of who he is and what he represents and what he does for a hockey team.

Ference Back Skating, Bruins Resting Up

BOSTON, MA - Defenseman Andrew Ference was back skating at TD Garden on Monday morning.

The veteran has been sidelined from game action since last playing in Game Five against Toronto in the first round on May 10.

The Bruins collectively stayed off the ice for the second straight day and did not hold practice following their series win, before ramping back up for their Eastern Conference Finals match-up with Pittsburgh. They’ll return to the ice Tuesday morning in Wilmington.

Ference was joined by Jaromir Jagr, Jay Pandolfo and Strength and Conditioning Coach John Whitesides, who all took to the ice on Memorial Day and worked their way through drills.
