The Bruins recalled center Joonas Kemppainen from Providence on Friday, a move likely associated with the potential availability of Patrice Bergeron for Saturday'€™s game against the Wild. Bergeron missed time early in the third period of Thursday'€™s win over the Jets after fighting Blake Wheeler in the second period. He returned to the game, however, scoring his second goal of the night. The veteran center did not practice on Friday, however, with coach Claude Julien telling reporters that Bergeron is questionable for Saturday. The B'€™s sent Kemppainen to Providence last week, where he has played three games with no points. Kemppainen posted one goal and two assists in 35 games prior to his demotion.
