Andrew Ference watched Game 2 of the Bruins’ playoff series against the Leafs Saturday night from the TD Garden press box alongside healthy scratches Kaspars Daugavins, Jay Pandolfo, Carl Soderberg, and Aaron Johnson. It was not Ference’s preferred point of perspective.

“Nerve-racking,” Ference said after practice Sunday. “You’re just sitting there. I think I probably bruised Daugy’s arm, hitting him so many times. You just hate it. But that’s the way it is.”

Ference was suspended for Game 2 because of his illegal check to Mikhail Grabovski’s head in Game 1.

Ference will be back on the ice in Game 3 at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre Monday night in Toronto.
