Andrew Ference will return to the lineup after serving his three-game suspension for a hit on Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh back on Jan. 21. He skated with Adam McQuaid in Thursday’s morning skate, and it was his partner’s presence that was even more encouraging for the Bruins. McQuaid suffered a lower-body injury late in Tuesday’s win over Ottawa and did not practice on Wednesday, but expects to be in the lineup Thursday. “I just kind of lost...
