WILMINGTON, Mass. -– The Bruins are back to work at Ristuccia Arena on Tuesday morning with the official start of their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Pittsburgh Penguins still yet to be announced.
The Bruins have their full complement of players on the ice for the first time since May 10, when Andrew Ference suffered a left foot injury in Game 5 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Ference had been out for nearly three weeks, but was back on the ice taking drills with the rest of his Bruins teammates. It remains to be seen how long it will take before Ference is ready to jump back into game action, but the Bruins will have three days or more of preparation time before dropping the puck against the high-powered Pittsburgh Penguins.
Wade Redden was also on the ice for a full practice session.
The lines remained unchanged from the forward combinations that graced the ice for the five-game series against the New York Rangers.
Here are the forward combos and D-pairings from practice:
