With Aaron Ward out for at least the next two games, the Bruins recalled Johnny Boychuk and Matt Lashoff from Providence.
Boychuk, acquired from Colorado during the offseason for Matt Hendricks, leads Providence in scoring with four goals and 19 assists. The righty-shooting Boychuk appeared in four NHL games last season.
This is Lashoff's second recall to Boston this season. Lashoff has four goals and 12 assists in 18 games.
