BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Bruins have recalled goalie Anton Khudobin from Providence, GM Peter Chiarelli announced Monday night.

This is Khudobin first recall to Boston of the 2011-12 season, and the netminder will be available for Tuesday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Khudobin went 21-19-3 in 44 games while recording two shutouts with the Providence Bruins of the AHL. He currently has a 2.61 goals against average (GAA) and a .919 save percentage.  The 25-year-old has appeared in six NHL games in his career with the Minnesota Wild, and was on the winning end of a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in his first NHL start on February 6, 2010.

With only three games remaining in the regular season, Khudobin is expected to get at least one start, with Marty Turco likely getting the other two games. This will give Tim Thomas some much-needed rest before the postseason begins.
