The Bruins announced Friday morning that they have recalled defenseman Matt Bartkowski from Providence on an emergency basis. The news comes after Andrew Ference  left Thursday night’s game with an injury after the second period.
Bartkowski was called up on an emergency basis on Sunday and made his NHL  debut against the Penguins  on Monday. He was returned to Providence after Adam McQuaid made his return to the lineup on Tuesday. The B’s face the Penguins at home on Saturday.
