The Bruins recalled Max Talbot from Providence on Saturday, a move that gives them 12 healthy forwards for Saturday'€™s game with Frank Vatrano out with an upper-body injury. Talbot has been up and down between Boston and Providence this season, skating in five games at the NHL level. He has played in seven games for Providence, registering one goal and five assists for six points. Saturday will mark Talbot'€™s second game in two days, as the 31-year-old skated in Friday'€™s P-Bruins game against Lehigh Valley. The Bruins did not hold a morning skate on Saturday, but it would seem logical for Talbot to play on the fourth line with Zac Rinaldo and Tyler Randell. "I'm glad to be back," Talbot said Saturday morning. "I've had a chance to play a little bit more down there also, so I feel healthy, feel good, ready to go and help any way I can." The B's will host the Maple Leafs Saturday night at TD Garden, marking the final game of their five-game homestand.
