Bruins prepare for home-and-home series against Toronto

WILMINGTON – Good morning from Ristuccia Arena, where the Bruins have started practice. Andrew Ference is the only player not practicing.

The Bruins will play two games this week against Toronto. They will visit the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday. They will host the Maple Leafs on Saturday. Toronto is one point ahead of the Bruins.

“Right now, we’re playing yo-yo with these guys,” Claude Julien said. “One game we’re ahead of them. The next game we’re behind them. This is an opportunity here in these next two games, if we want to spread that gap a little bit, it’s up to us to go in and do the job.”
