Boston calls up Ferlin, puts Miller (‘not looking good’) on IR


A couple of Bruins notes:

— Defenseman Kevan Miller has been placed on injured reserve. No surprise there after he was sent home Tuesday with a shoulder injury.

Said coach Claude Julien on Miller’s injury: “I don’t know what the final prognosis is, but it’s not looking good.”

The B’s have not recalled a defenseman to replace Miller, leaving them with the minimum six healthy blue-liners ahead of tomorrow’s game in St. Louis and Sunday’s in Chicago.

— The Bruins did call up a forward from AHL Providence. Brian Ferlin, 22, could make his NHL debut tomorrow.
