Bruins Call Up Trent Whitfield. I'm Dead Serious, Again

The Bruins have called up Trent Whitfield from Providence to be used on an emergency basis. This could be because Patrice Bergeron and Max Suave left the Bruins game against the Penguins on Sunday.

The Bruins got off to a slow start once again on Saturday, and never fully recovered in...
