Tardif's NHL debut
By Victoria Matiash
Forward Jamie Tardif appears ready to enjoy his first taste of NHL action. Recalled in light of injuries to Daniel Paille (upper-body) and Shawn Thornton (concussion), Tardif is expected to suit up for the Boston Bruins on Saturday versus the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe suggests the 28-year-old AHL journeyman could skate on the fourth line with Lane MacDermid and center Gregory Campbell.
Tardif has 30 points in 39 games for the Providence Bruins this season.
