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.
