Expect reinforcements from Providence

Images_medium

With the injury to Matt Hunwick (spleen) and the suspension of Milan Lucic, the Bruins only spare part is defenseman Andrew Ference, who is also recovering from an undisclosed injury. The Bruins will likely call up one or two players from Providence tomorrow. The Baby B's had a Calder Cup playoff game tonight against the Portland Pirates, so the team likely wanted to wait until after the game to call up anyone. My guess would be that the Bruins will call up forward Vladimir Sobotka and defenseman Johnny Boychuk. Peter Chiarelli has indicated that he prefers not to call up players from Providence during the Calder Cup playoffs but with the Bruins shorthanded they don't have any other option. The Providence Bruins, who lead their first round series against Portland 2-1 don't play again until Thursday night, so the timing of these anticipated call-ups could work out perfectly.
