Bruins recall Subban as the goalie merry-go-round keeps spinning


NHL: Preseason-Washington Capitals at Boston Bruins Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Per the Bruins’ Twitter account:

The drama apparently began with Anton Khudobin suffering some kind of injury in practice:

With Rask still not 100% and now Khudobin ailing, that left Subban as the next man up.

Subban has had a rough go of it in Providence lately, getting pulled after allowing 3 goals on 9 shots Friday.

Per Mark Divver of the Providence Journal, he had a decent outing last night:

Providence coach Kevin Dean was none too pleased with Friday’s effort, but liked what he saw yesterday a bit more:

Subban, you’ll remember, missed significant time last season after taking a puck to the throat. Can’t help but think the kid may need some time to get his game back together, physically and mentally.

Looks like he may get a chance to strut his stuff at the Garden on Tuesday, but, given his recent struggles, Julien and Co. may do whatever they can to get Rask or Khudobin ready instead.
