Bruins recall Kampfer from Providence
By: DJ Bean

 With uncertainty potentially surrounding Andrew Ference's availability for Sunday's game agaisnt the Flyers, the Bruins recalled defenseman Steven Kampfer from Providence following Saturday's game. 

Ference was tossed from the Bruins' 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers for his hit on Ryan McDonagh in overtime. The Bruins' blueliner was given both a five-minute charging major and a game misconduct for the play, and Marian Gaborik scored the game-winning goal on the power play with 3.6 seconds left in overtime.

Kampfer, who was sent to Providence Friday, was in attendance for Saturday's game.

Julien: Ference 'not a dirty player'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference put the Bruins in a tight spot when his dangerous hit on Ryan McDonagh in overtime put the Rangers on the power play until Marian Gaborik won the game with 3.6 seconds remaining. The play, which resulted in a five-minute charging major and a game misconduct, came when Callahan and Ference were racing for a puck behind the Rangers' net.  

"I'm obviously going as fast as I can to get to the puck, and when I realized I wasn't going to get there first, he boxed me out," Ference said. "I tried to lean back, but I was going too fast. Obviously it was a dangerous position. I tried to let up and didn't let up fast enough."

Ference might receive a call from NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan over the hit, and could become the third Bruin this season to be suspended after Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand. 

"I honestly haven't seen the replay, so I don't know how it looks," Ference...

Rangers beat clock, Bruins in OT
By: DJ Bean

 Two brilliant saves weren't enough for Tuukka Rask, as Marian Gaborik buried a third-chance bid with 3.6 remaining in overtime to give the Rangers a 3-2 win over the Bruins Saturday at TD Garden. 

The goal was Gaborik's second of the day, and it came with the Rangers on the power play thanks to a bad charging penalty from Andrew Ference. 

Ryan Callahan beat Rask with a wrist shot 1:31 into the second period, but a fight between Shawn Thornton and Mike Rupp seemed to wake the B's up. Ference scored his fourth goal of the season to tie the game at 3:28, and the game stayed tied until Marian Gaborik slapped an unsettled puck past Rask at 14:30. Adam McQuaid tied the game with 29 seconds left in the period, notching his second goal of the season. 

Rask made 26 saves on 28 shots from the Rangers in regulation, losing for the first time in eight games. Henrik Lundqvist picked up the win for New York.

The Bruins will...

Rondo game time decision for Sunday

Rajon Rondo was on the Celtics flight to Washington for their game on Sunday afternoon against the Wizards and has not been ruled out yet. Per a team spokeman, Rondo will be a game time decision with a sprained right wrist. 

The All-Star guard injured his wrist on Wednesday late in the third quarter against Toronto when he took a hard fall after a Flagrant-1 foul from Linas Kleiza. He left the game with the Celtics comfortably ahead and didn't play on Friday in a 79-71 loss to the Suns that saw the Celtics record their lowest point-total of the season.

All 15 players were on the flight including Keyon Dooling who has missed the last five game with a knee injury and Chris Wilcox who has been out four games with a strained left calf.
