Andrew Ference absent from practice

WILMINGTON – Good morning from Ristuccia Arena, where the Bruins have started practice in preparation for tomorrow’s game against the Islanders.

Andrew Ference is not practicing. Ference suffered a lower-body injury in last night’s 4-3 overtime win over New Jersey. Ference’s availability for tomorrow is unknown. If Ference can’t play, Mike Mottau would go back in. Mottau was a healthy scratch last night.

Johnny Boychuk is practicing for the first time since suffering a concussion last Saturday.

Zdeno Chara is also not present.

Lots of PP work in practice.

PP1: Dennis Seidenberg, Joe Corvo, David Krejci, Tyler Seguin, Milan Lucic.

PP2: Johnny Boychuk, Brian Rolston, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, Benoit Pouliot.
