The Bruins activated goaltender Jonas Gustavsson from injured reserve and returned Malcolm Subban to Providence on Thursday. Gustavsson is expected to back up Tuukka Rask Thursday night against the Sabres. Gustavsson had to leave last Tuesday'€™s game against the Ducks after one period and go to Mass General hospital, where he stayed overnight due to an elevated heart rate. He was released from the hospital the next day but has been on IR since the B'€™s returned from the All-Star break. Gustavsson skated Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, facing shots on Tuesday and Wednesday. Coach Claude Julien said on Tuesday that he was cleared to practice, but not to play. The team indicated that he would come off IR as soon as he received final clearance. Subban did not play in any games during his callup, backing up Rask on Tuesday. He will return to the AHL, where he has had a .948 save percentage in his last six starts.
