What’s the best way to get over the New England Patriots Super Bowl 52 loss? Turn your attention to the Boston Bruins, who made a few announcements Monday Morning.

The Boston Bruins practiced Monday morning at the Warrior Ice Arena in Brighton, before heading on the road for a back-to-back against Original Six foes the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers.

Anders Bjork (Upper Body) will remain out for the upcoming road trip, he has missed the last two games after leaving the game last Tuesday night against the Anaheim Ducks.

In a corresponding move, the team recalled forward Austin Czarnik from Providence, one day after reassigning him to the AHL. Czarnik suited up for the Bruins Saturday night against Toronto, and contributed an assist along with a +1 rating in the teams’ 4-1 victory.

With Brad Marchand set to return from his five game suspension on Wednesday night in New York, the sense is that this could be another one game stop for Czarnik.
