Ference suspended for Game Two

Ference suspended for Game Two

The Boston Bruins will be without defenseman Andrew Ference for Game Two as he was suspended by the NHL late this afternoon. The Department of Player Safety found Ference guilty of an illegal check to the head of Maple Leafs Mikhail Grabovski during the B’s Game One 4-1 victory.

Brendan Shanahan explained that Ference made Grabovski’s head the principal point of contact. Grabovski was not injured during the play. Shanahan also considered Ference a repeat offender due to his three-game suspension last year for boarding Ryan McDonagh.

Ference played alongside Johnny Boychuk on Wednesday night, but for Game two, that will not be the case. The B’s must consider all options for their Saturday night tilt with the Maple Leafs.

The Black and Gold could call old friend Matt Bartkowski from Providence or they can start youngster Dougie Hamilton or Aaron Johnson.
