Bruins put goalie Fernandez and forward Thornton on injured reserve @NHLdotcom

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins placed goalie Manny Fernandez and forward Shawn Thornton on the injured reserve list Friday.

Fernandez strained his left knee during practice on Oct. 30. It's the same knee he injured last January, ending his season with the Minnesota Wild. The Bruins gave no timetable for his return.

Thornton broke a bone in his left foot and is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Boston traded forward Petr Kalus and a fourth-round draft pick to Minnesota for Fernandez in July. He has a 2-2 record and a 3.93 goals-against average in four games this season.

Thornton has played in 13 games this season after joining Boston as an unrestricted free agent in the off-season. In 2006-07, he had two goals in 48 games for the Anaheim Ducks and four goals in 15 games for Portland in the AHL.

The Bruins also recalled defencemen Matt Lashoff and Matt Hunwick from their AHL affiliate in Providence.
