Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien said Saturday that the B’s would recall some players from Providence for Sunday’s season finale, and Julien certainly wasn’t kidding.
The B’s recalled four players on Sunday morning for their game in New Jersey against the Devils. Alexander Khokhlachev, Craig Cunningham, Justin Florek and Matt Lindblad were all recalled from Providence and will be with the team for the regular-season finale in New Jersey.
Khokhlachev will be making his highly anticipated NHL debut. The 2011 second-round draft pick is finishing up his first full season with the P-Bruins. He’s played 63 games this season and has scored 21 goals to go along with 36 assists.
Lindblad, Florek and Cunningham all made their debuts with the Bruins earlier this season.
