Ladies and Gentlemen, your Providence Bruins...

The Bruins announced today that Marc Savard was placed on the long-term IR with a broken left foot and will be out at least 4-6 weeks. Savard injured the foot in the preseason and has been playing through the injury. He recently re-aggravated it and after tests decided to take some time for it hear. Trent Whitfield was called up from Providence today and will likely replace Savard in the lineup tonight. According to Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, this is how the line could shake out tonight: Marco Sturm - Patrice Bergeron - Michael Ryder Vladimir Sobotka - David Krejci - Blake Wheeler Daniel Paille - Trent Whitfield - Mark Recchi Brad Marchand - Steve Begin - Byron Bitz Zdeno Chara - Derek Morris Andrew Ference - Dennis Wideman Mark Stuart - Matt Hunwick Tim Thomas Tuukka Rask
