Julien: Bruins D Ference not cleared
WILMINGTON, Mass. (AP)
That's according to coach Claude Julien.
Julien said after practice on Thursday he hasn't gotten the go-ahead to play the defenseman. Ference has missed the last seven playoff games with an unspecified injury.
Also Thursday, forward David Krejci skipped practice. Julien says that was a minor ''maintenance'' issue.
Game 1 of the best-of-seven series is on Saturday in Pittsburgh.
