Anton Khudobin Returns To Bruins, Gives Tuukka Rask Night Off Vs. Flames

The Boston Bruins recalled goalie Anton Khudobin on Friday from a conditioning assignment with the American Hockey League’s Providence Bruins, and they wasted no time inserting him into the starting lineup.

Khudobin gave Tuukka Rask a well-deserved night off, as he started in net against the Calgary Flames. Rask’s recent backup, Zane McIntyre, was assigned to the ECHL’s Atlanta Gladiators.

Hear more about Khudobin’s return from NESN’s Dale Arnold, Billy Jaffe, Barry Pederson and Andy Brickley in “Bruins Face-Off Live” video above.
