Andrew Ference Suspension: Bruins Defenseman Suspended For Hit On Rangers' Ryan McDonagh

The Boston Bruins will be without their defenseman Andrew Ference Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers (3 p.m. on NESN), as he has been suspended by the NHL for his hit on New York Rangers Ryan McDonagh Saturday night. The announcement came from Bruins head coach Claude Julien, who could not confirm the length of the suspension.

"Ference and McDonagh were both chasing a puck Ference had chipped behind Henrik Lundqvist's net in overtime when Ference shoved the Rangers blueliner into the endboards," reports WEEI.

"With Ference out, Steven Kampfer will be in the Bruins' lineup Sunday in Philadelphia."

The suspension is the third of the year for the Bruins, who know tied for the league with a league-high the Calgary Flames.
