Ference nearing a return?

UPDATE: Don't count on seeing defenseman Andrew Ference in the lineup for Game 1 between the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins. Admitting it's still only "guesswork", Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe believes the Bruins will stick with Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Matt Bartkowski, Johnny Boychuk, Torey Krug, and Adam McQuaid for the Eastern Conference Final opener.
