As expected, the Boston Bruins have recalled goalie Zane McIntyre from the AHL, and they’ve assigned goalie Anton Khudobin to Providence.

From the press release:

McIntyre, 24, is undefeated with Providence in 2016-17, compiling a 10-0-0 record. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound netminder leads the AHL in goals against average (1.41) and save percentage (.951), and was recognized as AHL Goalie of the Month for December. 

He has also played in three games with Boston this season, posting a 0-2-0 record with a 4.04 goals against average and .859 save percentage. He also played two games with the Atlanta Gladiators of the ECHL, recording a 1.99 goals against average and .931 save percentage.

The B’s start a four-game road trip Saturday at Florida. McIntyre may even start that one, as the Bruins also play Sunday at Carolina.

Tuukka Rask allowed four goals on 25 shots in last night’s 4-3 loss to the Oilers. The B’s (20-17-4) are at risk of falling out of a playoff spot. They’re only two points up on Toronto for third place in the Atlantic Division, and the Leafs have four games in hand.
