Griffith called back up to Bruins; Spooner stays in Providence


The Boston Bruins have recalled forward Seth Griffith from AHL Providence. They have not recalled forward Ryan Spooner.

Both players were sent down over the weekend and played Sunday against Portland. They were both healthy scratches for Boston’s game Saturday in Buffalo.

The signing of veteran forward Simon Gagne, combined with the return from injury of bottom-six forward Gregory Campbell, has only added to the competition to get into the lineup.

The B’s host San Jose on Tuesday before welcoming Johnny Boychuk and the Islanders to town Thursday.
