Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers that defenseman Andrew Ference, who left the game in the second period, has a lower-body injury.
"Only a lower-body injury right now, and I don’t know the severity of it, so that’s all I can give you," Julien said after the game.
Ference played only two shifts in the second period and totaled 9:22 of icetime on the night.

Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin scored the only goals of the second period to snap a 2-2 tie and lead the Bruins to their fourth straight win, a 6-3 decision over the Oilers Thursday night at TD Garden. Defenseman Joe Corvo added three assists and Tuukka Rask stopped 27-of-30 shots in winning his second straight start.
After starting the season 3-7-0, the Bruins have finally worked their way back to .500 with the win. The Bruins also reached the .500 mark for the first time since the second game of the season. The Bruins have scored 24 goals in four-game winning streak.
The game was a match-up of the top two picks from the 2010 NHL Draft, when the Oilers took Taylor Hall first overall, while the Bruins took Seguin. Hall made his impact by setting up another No. 1 overall pick - rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - for a goal that tied the game, 2-2. Nugent-Hopkins' goal came just 29 seconds after Ryan Smyth put the Oilers on the board.
When Celtics legend Bill Russell speaks, people listen. So, will his latest comments to CBSSports.com convince NBA owners and players to end the lockout?
"As a very interested bystander, I just hope they get a deal," Russell told columnist Ken Berger. "And it will not come from the hard-liners on either side. I think they all know that. I have this thoery that hard-liners are like true believers. And true believers think that any compromise is a retreat. And moving forward, that doesn't cut it."
After a collective bargaining session that extended late into Wednesday night, leaders on both sides have reconvened in New York on Thursday afternoon with the hope to strike a deal before more games are canceled.
The 11-time NBA champion also discussed his role in the establishment of the National Basketball Players Association as well as ...

Speaking on Jason Whitlock's podcast for FoxSports.com, Jackie MacMullan -- the author of Shaquille O'Neal new book "Shaq Uncut" -- said that the former Celtic center was repeatedly physically abused by his father, Phillip Harrison, during O'Neal's childhood.
According to CBS Sportsline, MacMullan said in the interview, "It gets lost in the shuffle because people want to talk about Kobe, Pat Riley, and LeBron and all these other famous people, but another fascinating part of this book is his father. 'Sarge,' Phillip Harrison, who, frankly, abused him all the way through his life. Physically abused him, beat the living daylights out of him at every turn.
"We're not talking about spanking," MacMullan later continued. "We're talking about a belt. Beating him badly. Something that disturbed his mother greatly. Of course, Shaq's mom and his dad aren't together any more. I think that's in part why. Sarge was a military guy,...
