With the Bruins having lost a couple of games in a row to the Penguins and Blue Jackets in pretty bad defensive fashion, they're going to shuffle the deck a little bit.

Defenseman Connor Clifton and forward Paul Carey are both getting called up to the NHL and are on a plane bound for Winnipeg ahead of the Thursday night tilt against the Jets, per a tweet from Providence Journal reporter Mark Divver. Carey has 14 goals and 20 points in 21 games for Providence since being traded back to the B’s organization and Clifton impressed Bruins officials with his poise, feistiness and positive impact when he was up with the NHL team earlier this season.
