Kampfer/By S. Bradley

Bruins defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Jordan Caron have been on the sidelines lately, so Boston has decided to ship both out to the Providence (AHL) farm club to get some action.

Both players are expected to play for the P-Bruins Friday night in their home game against Connecticut.

Kampfer hasn’t played since Nov. 17. Caron hasn’t played since Nov. 15.

Expect one or both players to be back with Boston by Saturday or Sunday the latest, as the Bruins leave for a two-game road trip Monday and Tuesday at Pittsburgh and Winnipeg.
