Andrew Ference will be making his return to TD Garden on Saturday for the first time since he left the Boston Bruins in the offseason to sign with the Edmonton Oilers — his childhood team.
The Oilers are riding a three-game winning streak, and on Wednesday, they shut out a very good San Jose Sharks team 3-0. Edmonton is loaded up front with several ultra-talented players, including former No. 1 overall draft picks Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. If the Bruins don’t play better defense than they did in Thursday’s loss to Montreal, the Oilers likely will leave Boston with two points.
