Bruins Continue To Reach For Providence Defensemen: Zboril and Clifton

It’s easy to see that that injuries have taken their toll on the Bruin’s defense lately. With Carlo, Miller and Vaakanainen on IR and Moore and Chara out tonight against dallas the bruins are digging deep in providence to fill the void. According to the teams twitter the line up for tonight look like this:

 

This is definitely concern for the bruins as this is Zboril and Clifton’s first NHL game. Another thing that caught my attention is that this is Tuukka’s first game back after his short leave of absence. Honestly, I think this is like throwing Tuukka to the wolves . Historically, he doesn’t play well against Dallas and now he has two green defensemen plus and a banged up defense. On the other hand if Tuukka pulls out a W this will be a HUGE confidence boost for the rest of the season. With that said, the new guys seem to be very talented and bruins fans are excited to see them play. Clifton has 4 points in 14 games for Providence. Zboril, skated in 13 games with Providence this season, tallying 2 goals and 2 assists for four points with 16 penalty minutes and a minus-four rating. As expected, both are eager to get out there.

Go B’s
