Bruins return Matt Lindblad to Providence

The Bruins returned forward Matt Lindblad to Providence Saturday after he made his NHL debut in a 5-1 win over the Hurricanes.
The team had recalled Lindblad so they could see him in NHL action and played him in place of Shawn Thornton, who was a healthy scratch. Lindblad logged 8:25 of ice time with an even rating and no shots on goal.
“I liked his game,” Claude Julien said. “He skates well, quick skater, quick thinker. He made some real good heads-up plays, so like I’ve said all along, I like his hockey sense.”
