Karsums, Sobotka Recalled

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has recalled forwards Martins Karsums and Vladimir Sobotka from Providence (American Hockey League) on an emergency basis. Both players will join Boston for practice on Thursday at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington and accompany the team on their upcoming two-game road trip to New Jersey and Nashville.

The key words being emergency basis. That means it is unlikely that either Kobasew or Nokelainen will be available for those two games. Still no word on injury updates on either player.

New lines from practice:

New powerplay lines:
-PP1- Kessel-Savard-Yelle

-PP2 Bergeron-Krejci-Lucic

With Kobasew and Ryder out of the lineup the Bruins needed another right handed shot. Therefore, the decision to put Kessel on the top unit and have Bergeron play down low with the second. Stephane Yelle is also getting a look on the powerplay. Worth a shot right especially since everything else has not been working? He is a smart player who has better offensive abilities then Axelsson. Plus, he will actually drive to the net. Blake Wheeler did not receive any powerplay time.

It's more because Kobasew and Nokelainen are both unavailable for the next two games. If they preform, great, it could increase their trade value. But overall, that is not the reason for the recall.
