Bruins recall Anton Khudobin from Providence

The Bruins announced Monday that they have recalled goaltender Anton Khudobin from Providence. Khudobin will likely be the Bruins’ backup goaltender when the playoffs begin if Tuukka Rask [1] is not ready to return from his abdomen strain/groin strain.

Khudobin has a 21-19-3 record in Providence this season with a 2.61 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage. He suffered a wrist injury in early March, but returned on March 23. He has a 2-2 record since returning.

Current backup Marty Turco [2], who has made three appearances for the team, is ineligible for postseason play because he was signed after the trade deadline.
