The Bruins have recalled defenseman Matt Bartkowski from Providence on an emergency basis to help fill roster gaps left by defenseman Steven Kampfer and center Patrice Bergeron.
Kampfer will miss Saturday’s game vs. the Penguins because of a concussion suffered in last night’s win over the Lightning. Bergeron will miss the Penguins game for personal reasons.
Bartkowski has played two games for the Bruins, both against the Penguins (Jan. 10 and 15). He has scored five goals and has 16 assists in 55 games at Providence.
