Max Talbot sent down. Is Pastrnak back?

Maybe Frank the Tank is really that good. The Bruins announced today during the newsdump hour that they've returned Max Talbot to Providence. This bodes well for Frank Vatrano's chances in the lineup for a while. Let's hope he doesn't turn into Jordan Caron 2.0. (Caron scored a goal in his 2nd, 4th, and 7th NHL game. Then not again over the next 24.) The other possibility is that this means Pastrnak is ready to go for Thursday, which would be quite exciting. The third possibility is that he was sent down to preserved his "waived" status. The CBA states that a player doesn't need new waivers...

Home Won

A shutout for Rask and QUOTA. Smells like victory, no? Bruins assign Max Talbot to Providence. He cleared waivers earlier this month. Talbot has been in NHL since PIT called him up 24 Oct 2006. — Jack Edwards (@RealJackEdwards) October 27, 2015 Welp, great asset management. Wasted a perfectly useful Jordan Caron (not really) https://t.co/xZqzV79ScT — Torey Krueger (@tservo42) October 27, 2015 Wearing a cage, Anthony Camara was a full participant in @AHLBruins practice today. — Mark Divver (@MarkDivver) October 27, 2015 Thanks, @google. Exactly what I thought....
