Bruins recall Alexander Khokhlachev, Craig Cunningham, Justin Florek and Matt Lindblad

The Bruins recalled four forwards from Providence on an emergency basis Sunday morning. Alexander Khokhlachev, Craig Cunningham, Justin Florek and Matt Lindblad will all join the team in New Jersey and be available for the team’s regular-season finale against the Devils.
Khokhlachev is the only one of the four who has yet to play an NHL  game, and as such, the 2011 second-round pick will in all likelihood make his NHL  debut. He has 21 goals and 36 assists for a team-leading 57 points in 63 games for Providence this season.
Florek played very well for the Bruins in a three-game stint with the team in January, scoring a goal and adding an assist for two points while subbing on the team’s fourth line. Cunningham and Lindblad each played one game apiece.
The forwards will be used both due to injuries (Daniel Paille  and Patrice Bergeron  both left Saturday’s game, while Chris Kelly  has missed the last two and won’t play Sunday) and perhaps for the sake of rest of other players. According to the Boston Globe, Bergeron, Paille, Kelly, Zdeno Chara , David Krejci , Milan Lucic  and Jarome Iginla did not travel to New Jersey.
