With Rask ill, Bruins recall goalie Smith

The Boston Bruins on Friday recalled goaltender Jeremy Smith from Providence of the AHL.

Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters in New Jersey earlier in the day that goaltender Tuukka Rask was sick and was questionable to play Friday against the Devils. Niklas Svedberg ended up getting the start.

Smith, 25, has played in 26 games for the P-Bruins this season, posting a 14-8-4 record, a 2.08 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage.
