The Bruins announced Saturday that they have sent forwards Seth Griffith and Alexander Khokhlachev to Providence and recalled defenseman Colin Miller. The B's had sent Miller to Providence on Thursday due to a roster imbalance created by Brad Marchand's suspension. Without Marchand, the B's had 12 forwards and eight defensemen, so they brought up Khokhlachev in favor of Miller. Khokhlachev played just 6:01 in Friday's Winter Classic, attempting no shots in the game. Griffith began the game as Boston's first-line right wing but was demoted midway through the second period. Griffith and Khokhlachev will have the opportunity to play on Sunday for Providence against Rochester.
