Bruins assign Caron to Providence
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced late Friday night that they have assigned forward Jordan Caron to Providence. 

Caron, 21, was last in the Bruins' lineup on Dec. 10, and he has dressed in only two NHL contests since Nov. 15. The assignment will allow him to see game action, as Providence has a game against Portland on Monday. The Bruins will next play Wednesday in Phoenix.

Very Marchand Christmas: B's rip Panthers

Brad Marchand scored his first career hat trick and added a pair of assists and six different Bruins scored to lead the Bruins to a 8-0 rout of the Panthers in the final game before the four-day Christmas break. Tuukka Rask stopped all 30 shots for his second shutout of the season, and 10th career, as the Bruins extended their latest win streak to six games. 

Marchand scored early in the third to put the Bruins up, 7-0. Then, with 9:06 left in the third, he beat Scott Clemmensen for his third of the night. He also set a new career high for points with five and overtook Tyler Seguin for the team lead in goals with 15.  

The Bruins showed early on they were intent on avenging the 2-0 shutout of Dec. 8 that snapped their nine-game home ice point streak. Brad Marchand scored on a shorthanded chance just under six minutes into the game. Milan Lucic, in his first game back from Monday's one-game suspension for a hit on Zac Rinaldo, scored his...

Pats release Fuller, promote Moore, Silvestro

FOXBORO -- Just two days after signing him to a one-year contract, the Patriots Friday released safety Vincent Fuller, just one day before his potential debut against the Dolphins. 

Fuller spent most of the season on the Lions' injured reserve before being released this week by Detroit, allowing him to sign and immediately play somewhere else. The Patriots picked him up on Wednesday and he was limited in practice Wednesday, Thursday and in Friday's walkthrough. 

He had taken one of the two roster vacancies that opened up earlier in the week, when Andre Carter went on injured reserve. Those two spots will be taken by defensive back Sterling Moore and defensive lineman Alex Silvestro, both of whom were promoted on Friday from the practice sqaud. Moore played in five games with the Patriots before his release on Dec. 10. Silvestro, another rookie product of Rutgers, will be a part of the active roster for the first time this season. ...

Vollmer doubtful, 15 Pats questionable

FOXBORO -- For the second straight day, Brandon Spikes and Sebastian Vollmer were the only Patriots missing at practice as the team wrapped up preparations for the Dolphins Saturday at Gillette Stadium with their weekly day-before-game walkthrough. The team listed Vollmer as doubtful, while Spikes and 14 others - including Patrick Chung - were questionable.

Doc: 'Right now, I don't see (Pierce) playing'

WALTHAM -- The Celtics are preparing for the real possiblility that they won't have Paul Pierce available when they open the shortened 66-game season on Sunday in New York against the Knicks. Pierce, nursing a nagging heel injury, shot around after practice and watched from the sidelines but did not take part in the team's formal practice session on Friday. 

"He didn't do anything," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said after Friday's session. "He seemed to working more as far as working out so we'll see [Saturday]. I still think it's doubtful but we'll see.

"I think [Saturday], we'll know better. Paul may wake up and say, 'Coach, I wanna go.' I can tell you this, it's very unlikely he'll start if he plays. I don't think that'll happen. If he does play, he'll play 15 to 20 minutes but right now, I don't see him playing."

If Pierce is unable to go, Rivers said Sasha Pavlovic will likely start in his place, as was the...
