Video: Andrew Ference Not Suspended For Hit On Jeff Halpern

Andrew Ference

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference will not be suspended by the league on Thursday, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told reporters on Thursday.

Ference’s shoulder check on Montreal’s Jeff Halpern in the third period of the B’s epic Game 7 win sent the Hab to the lockerroom. You may remember that Ference was fined $2,500 earlier in the series for giving the middle finger to Montreal fans after scoring a goal.

Check out the Ference hit for yourself:

  1. I don’t even understand why he got a penalty. Halpern skated into Ference, not the other way around.

  2. Just another blown call. 2 bad ones in game 6 and another 2 by Sutherland in game 7. Also game 1 of Vancouver series, a perfect hip check called a penalty. Don’t forget diving. This isn’t soccer.
