Don’t worry, there’s probably a good reason for this.

In a move that is like so many others that happened today, Peter Cehlarik and Karson Kuhlman were sent down to Providence in what is all likelihood a paper move:

A number of teams tend to do this right around the deadline as it allows many of the in-betweeners getting chances in the NHL to play in the AHL’s Calder Cup Playoffs once the Bruins’ season concludes, whenever it does.

Chances are, one or both will be back up by tomorrow for their tilt against San Jose.
