Bruins place inconsistent Bourque on waivers

The Bruins’ third line has not performed to expectations. On Thursday, Chris Bourque suffered the consequences of the line’s shortcomings.

The Bruins placed the left wing on waivers. Any team can claim Bourque by noon on Friday. If Bourque clears, it’s likely the Bruins will assign him to Providence. Bourque is in the first season of a two-year, $1.1 million contract. He will be on a one-way deal in 2013-14.
