After played three games in four days, the Boston Bruins appeared to have the day off. With their next game against the Red Wings in Detroit on Friday night, the team “assigned” both forwards they recalled from the Providence Bruins, Cameron Hughes and Zach Senyshyn. With the Bruins up against the cap, these transactions are likely paper in nature and not physical since every day a player is on the roster during the season, they count against the salary cap, which is figured daily.

Zach Senyshyn had a good game the night before even if his minutes were somewhat constricted. In a rare move, the NHL changed the score sheet and awarded Senyshyn an additional assist on Connor Clifton’s goal. The NHL did not change their assessment of Charlie Coyle’s goal.
Goal at 7:17 of the 2nd period now reads Connor Clifton from Zach Senyshyn. #NHLStats

The Bruins cap situation is very tight, prompting the team to place Kevan Miller on LTIR late last week in order to bring up players from Providence. Joakim Nordstrom has also been placed on IR with Par Lindholm.
The B’s are just a lot of moving parts at this point.
