Earlier today Bruins reporter for CSNNE Joe Haggerty mentioned that he saw Seth Griffith with all of his bags packed walking out of TD Garden. Despite making an impact early on in the season, Griffith has been held pointless in the last three games. The decision  to send him down isn’t due to being unproductive, but more for salary cap reasons and is expected to be back up with the big club at a later date.

Griffith has appeared in 18 of the Bruins games thus far, posting 5 goals and 7 points. His most memorable being the highlight goal where he scored from between his legs against the Devils. Don’t remember it? Here, have a look.

Prior to joining Boston in early October against the Colorado Avalanche, he appeared in three games with the Providence Bruins.  In those three games he was able to post two goals and an assist, as well as sporting a plus-1 rating.

  • With Griffith being sent down to Providence the likeliness of seeing David Pastrnak in the lineup increases.  Pastrnak, who was called up late Sunday evening, is anticipated to make his NHL debut tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins.  When he was asked about the possibility of taking part in tonight’s match up he stated;

    “[I’m] happy I got this opportunity…don’t know if I’ll play, but practicing with those guys it’s great, so I’m just trying to enjoy it.”

    As we mentioned earlier today, Pastrnak being inserted in the Bruins line up would be a smart move by the Bruins coaching staff. His speed and skill set is exactly what the Bruins offensive lines have been missing lately. During this morning’s practice Pastrnak was alongside Alex Khokhlachev and Matt Fraser, a newly formed line consisting of the younger players on the team.  While Julien stated there would be a lot of game-time decisions, with Griffith being sent down, we can almost guarantee he will be in tonight. Pre-game warmups are coming up in a couple of hours and then we’ll know for certain, until then, it’s all a waiting game.
