Griffith will be available to play Tuesday against the Senators. If he does, it would figure to be at the expense of one of Boston's right wings (Jimmy Hayes and Tyler Randell are currently the team's third and fourth-line right wings, respectively). Randell was one of three skaters to take the ice Tuesday morning, as he joined injured players Torey Krug and Joonas Kemppainen. Griffith has been red-hot at the AHL level, registering 16 points (five goals, 11 assists) over his last nine games. Initially something of a longshot candidate to push for a job in Boston this season, Griffith suffered a sprained MCL in training camp and did not play his first game of the season until Oct. 23. In 24 games for Providence this season, Griffith has 10 goals and 17 assists for 27 points. He had 10 points (six goals, four assists) in 30 games for Boston last season. Along with recalling Griffith, the Bruins moved David Krejci to injured reserve. He is considered week-to-week with an upper-body injury. Krug, who skated for a second consecutive day on Tuesday, is a possibility to play against the Senators, though Julien was mostly mum on his lineup.
