What do you get as a reward when you score your first goal of the NHL season and help your team take down the defending conference champion? A trip to the minors.
The Boston Bruins this morning announced that center Martin St. Pierre, who chipped in with a shorthanded goal last night in the 5-2 win at Pittsburgh, has been assigned to Providence (AHL). In five games with the Bruins, St. Pierre also registered one assist.
Also, the Bruins placed center Patrice Bergeron (concussion) on the injured reserve list.
